The Nulaxy laptop stand is made for laptops between 10-inch and 16-inch. However, the best bet would be to get it if you have the 13-inch variant.

2. SATECHI ALUMINUM MULTI-PORT ADAPTER
Ports: 1 x 4K HDMI, 1 x Ethernet, 1 x USB-C Pass-Through, 1 x SD Card Reader, 3 x USB 3.0
It has a solid performance when it comes to durability and speed. It’s a tad expensive than most USB-C adapters, but its performance justifies its premium price tag. What’s more, the 4K HDMI port ensures that you get 4K content at 60Hz when you connect it to a 4K monitor. Cool, right?
3. LOGITECH K380 KEYBOARD
If you plan to prop up your laptop in a laptop stand or use it in an extended setup, it makes sense to invest in a quality keyboard such as the Logitech K380.
The K380 lets you switch between three devices with ease. A duo of AAA batteries powers it, and a single set can last for two years. The different labels on the keys make it convenient to use across multiple devices at the same time.
If you spend a lot of your time typing and do not mind spending a few bucks, you can check out the Razer Pro Type. This one is designed exclusively for office use and delivers a comfortable typing experience.
4. TOMTOC 360 PROTECTIVE LAPTOP SLEEVE
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is slim and portable. So, even if you want to keep your laptop free from scratches and scuff marks, you should get your hands on a durable laptop sleeve. Apart from the laptop, it has an additional storage area for peripherals and the likes. However, do note that it takes on a bulky appearance when the second compartment has laptop accessories.
The Tomtoc 360 bag looks sharp and professional. Its durable and lightweight, and sturdy design has attracted quite a few praises from its user base.
5. SURFACE PRECISION MOUSE
Unlike older mice, mice these days have more buttons to ease your work and boost your productivity. If you want an affordable yet highly functional mouse, the Surface Precision is a good pick.
And well, it doesn’t look too bad either. The plain and minimalistic look pairs well with that of the Surface Laptop 4. It’s a wireless mouse and the USB-C port at the front lets you switch to the wired mode just in case it runs out of battery.
6. WAVLINK USB 3.0 UNIVERSAL LAPTOP DOCKING STATION
Ports: 6 x SuperSpeed USB 3.0, 2 x DisplayPort, 2 x HDMI, Ethernet, USB-C In, 3.5mm Audio
If you want to connect your laptop to an external display and slew of peripherals, a laptop dock is an ideal investment.
Both HDMI and DisplayPort connection gives you the flexibility of upgrading your display in the future. At the same time, the HDMI 2.0 brings several features to the table. For one, it supports high-resolution displays and can push 18.0 Gbps of bandwidth.
