Customize your MacBook

How to Make Your MacBook Look Cool

posted in: Articles

When it comes to appearance and style, MacBooks are in a league of their own. Their sleek appearance with the smooth silver body (now available in space grey, too) instantly makes them look like technology from the future.

However, after a while, that plain silver laptop can also start looking boring. If that sounds familiar, here are a few ideas on how you can customize and make your MacBook look cool.

Get a Unique MacBook Case or Sleeve

One easy way to make your MacBook look cool without making any permanent changes to it is to get a unique MacBook case or sleeve for it. These come in various colours and styles. For instance, you can opt for a brown leather sleeve or a colourful cloth one. So, you can pick the one that best suits your aesthetic.

Besides the fresh appearance, a case or sleeve can be convenient in other ways, too. It allows you to carry your laptop easily without exposing it. If you get those leather cases, they can protect your MacBook from bumps or other damage. Furthermore, since they’re not too bulky, they’re easy to travel with, too.

Add Stickers

If you want to completely personalize your MacBook or MacBook Pro and make it one-of-a-kind, stickers and decal are the best way to do so. Since you can actually design and make your own stickers, the possibilities are endless. You can choose a theme, such as sports, comics, Star Wars, etc., get the relevant stickers printed and stick them on your laptop for a cool and funky appearance.

Customize the Touch Bar

If you have the MacBook Pro with the touch bar, you have another option for customization. You can modify the touch bar to show your favourite programs and applications. These can either be Apple’s programs or even third-party applications. To do this, you need to click on ‘View’ and select ‘Customize Touch Bar’. In the new window, you can click and drag options around to arrange the applications and tasks on your touch bar. This idea can make things more convenient for you.

Change Up Your Desktop

Another easy way to make your MacBook look cool is to change things up on your desktop. There are several options to do this, too. You can change the desktop wallpaper or screensaver to something unique. You don’t have to pick one from the default wallpapers available. You can put up a picture of yourself as well.

Similarly, you can change the theme colour of the laptop, personalize the login screen, create a 3D desktop, and even change the sounds on your MacBook.

Final Thoughts

With a few changes here and there, you can give your laptop a complete makeover and make your MacBook look cool and different from the rest. If you don’t want to make any permanent changes, we would suggest getting a laptop sleeve and personalizing your desktop.
