The arrival of MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 ports with USB-C connectors has accelerated the replacement of expansion ports on computers. At the moment, those of us who have one of these computers are facing a problem when connecting accessories and peripherals, but it is expected that in the near future most devices coming to market will use this type of connector, in order to take advantage of the benefits it offers compared to other options.
The downside is that until we renew our accessories we must resort to adapters to connect them or to hubs like this one from Satechi which, for most, puts an end to the problems of missing ports.
The popular brand has developed this hub that s and connects to two of the Thunderbolt 3 ports with USB-C connector of the new MacBook Pro and in return gives us a lot of expansion ports of different types.
Specifically, the Satechi hub has the following ports:
- HDMI 4k video output.
- A Thunderbolt 3 port.
- Two USB 3.0 ports.
- A USB-C port.
- SD card reader.
- MicroSD card reader.
Thanks to these ports it will be no problem to connect any of the accessories and peripherals that we used in previous equipment to the MacBook Pro , since the hub has the most common ones.
The design of the accessory deserves a special mention. Satechi is a brand known for creating accessories for Apple devices with impressive finishes and in this case does not disappoint either.
The hub fits perfectly into the design of the current MacBook Pro range and is compatible with both the 13-inch and 15-inch models . It attaches directly to the side of the computer via the USB-C ports and does not require an extension cable as with other accessories of this style.
Satechi’s 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro dock with Thunderbolt 3 ports with USB-C connector is available through Amazon in both Space Grey and Silver.
