So you have your new MacBook Pro. You’ve ordered online or were lucky enough to find it available at the nearest Apple Store. But now you need to personalize your new MacBook Pro! You have a computer that will last you for years. Do something that gives it a personal touch. Not only will it help you distinguish your personal computer from everyone else’s, you will come to enjoy it even more.

1. Stickers/Decals

Putting a beautifully designed sticker or decal is the number one option for people who want to personalize their new MacBook Pro. Decals can be ordered on specific websites like Etsy, and there is a huge variety to choose from. Whether you’re into sci-fi, sports, crafts, or words, there is a decal that is right for you.

2. Leather MacBook Case or Sleeve

Getting a leather MacBook case or sleeve is also a great way to personalize your new MacBook Pro. Leather MacBook cases are sturdy, durable, minimalistic, and bring a great, customized look. You can get them at here in various color options. MacBook leather cases are great for traveling and allow you to fit adapters, charging cable, and other small items in the case itself. While leather MacBook sleeves are a little different and have a minimalistic design that denotes the same standard of portability as your MacBook.

3. Touch Bar Options

The most exhilarating thing about the new MacBook Pro is the Touch Bar. This unique aspect of the new keyboard opens up many different options for personalization. The goal of the Touch Bar is to bring items right to you instead of having to search for them. Here’s how to customize your Touch Bar so you can get the most out of your machine:

Locate System Preferences → Go to Keyboard → Select “Customize Control Strip”

This will bring up the control strip menu. You are then able to click on what you would like to display on the control strip and drag it down onto the bar.

4. Appearance

Much of what you see on the brilliant MacBook Pro display can be adjusted to fit your personal preferences. The great thing about having a Mac computer is that all of these customizations are intuitive. Here’s a few things you can do to really personalize your new MacBook Pro:

  • Change the desktop wallpaper
  • Enable “show percentage” for battery life
  • Hide your dock
  • Personalize the Touch Bar

5. Silver or Space Gray

For years MacBooks were only available in a silver color. In recent years, however, we saw that change when Apple opened up your choices. You are able to personalize your MacBook Pro by choosing the color to be either "space gray" or silver. And, as you might imagine, "space gray" is dominating the market. Apple fans are loving the sleek look.

Personalizing your MacBook Pro can be done now in new and more ways than ever. What are some of the things you plan to do to make your laptop your own?
