MCE Com­ple­ment

Mac Format - - GADGETS - $299 (ap­prox £178)

What is it? Could this be the hand­i­est por­ta­ble note­book ac­ces­sory ever? It’s an op­ti­cal disc reader/ recorder that can han­dle Blu-ray as well as DVDs and CDs. But it also boasts a 2TB hard drive, a USB 3.0 hub and an SD card reader. It’s the per­fect travel com­pan­ion for your MacBook – it even comes with a handy travel bag. Mac Blu-ray Player soft­ware is in­cluded for the play­back of com­mer­cial Blu-ray ti­tles di­rectly on the Mac, and if you want to record Blu-rays too, there’s always Roxio Toast (see our re­view on page 98). When’s it due? Grab one now. Why are we ex­cited? Ap­ple note­books are get­ting lighter and more por­ta­ble all the time, but some of the ad­van­tage is lost if you need to cart around a bag­ful of ac­ces­sories with it. If you cur­rently use a por­ta­ble hard drive, mo­bile op­ti­cal drive, USB hub and SD card reader with your Air or Pro, the MCE Com­ple­ment can cover all of th­ese bases.
