Docking stations help bridge the gap between when you want a laptop and when you want a desktop. Byte-dock has a new docking station for Mac Book Pros that looks pretty sleek.
- It is an all-in-one docking solution
- No need for extra cables
- Works with all MacBook Pro models from mid-2010 onwards
- No requirement to purchase another power adapter (unlike other docks)
- Simple and seamless plug-and-play functionality
- Thunderbolt technology
Users can also have FireWire 800 devices, Ethernet and audio cables plugged into the dock and the MacBook will connect to them.
In terms of specifications, the Byte-dock comes with two usb ports, one mic/line in, one audio out/headphone socket, one FireWire 800 socket, one Thunderbolt port (used in conjunction with the HDMI video cable shipped with the dock) and one Ethernet socket.
Users can also insert a media card into the in-built socket and leave in the device while it is docked. Each device package includes a Byte-dock, an instruction booklet and a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable.
The Byte-dock will retail at £149.99 in different sizes from the UK with international shipping. You can find out more at byte-dock.com.
A sleek setup with the TV is a great example of how this Docking station can add convenience and improve the look that starts deteriorating once cables start getting plugged into a computer.
