If you wonder how to turn a Macbook into a desktop Mac easily, we are going to show you the ways. A Macbook is an excellent option for work since we can take it anywhere.
When we are at home we can also continue to use the Apple laptop but if we use it for too long we may suffer some neck or back pain.
However, it is perfectly possible to continue working with our Macbook at home by turning it into a desktop Macbook. There are different options, which we will discover below.
How to turn a Macbook into a desktop Mac easily?
Use external monitors
Of course, before we buy an external monitor, we should understand what limitations our Macbook might have.
For example, if it has an HDMI connection, then we will only have to look for an external monitor compatible with HDMI.
But you have a version purchased after 2016, it will be necessary to look for an adapter that is compatible. On the other hand, in case we need to use several HDMI monitors at the same time, we would also need an adapter with several HDMI outputs.
Use an external keyboard
In case you want to go a little further and opt for an external keyboard, instead of the one built into the Macbook, you can opt for any keyboard with Bluetooth connectivity that you will find in stores. Of course, you can use Apple’s Magic Keyboard.
However, any keyboard with Bluetooth or USB connectivity will solve your problems.
Use an external mouse or trackpad
To have a full authentic desktop Mac experience, in addition to the external keyboard it is necessary to choose a mouse or a trackpad.
In case you already have experience with the Macbook’s multi-touch trackpad, if you want to emulate the same feeling and functionality, the best option is to choose Apple’s Magic Trackpad 2, since there will be, at least for the moment, nothing else like it in stores.
Among the various functions it includes, it is perfectly possible to make the pinch-to-zoom gesture, scroll through the system or Web pages with your fingers, or, in short, perform any other compatible gestural function.
Use an external SSD for more storage
Although nowadays most Macbooks come with solid-state drives (SSDs), which are characterized by being tremendously fast and much more durable, you might want to have some extra space.
For this reason, you might want to buy one to be able to have a full desktop experience in your home.
