Feeling constrained by the limited ports and expensive storage on modern MacBooks or other USB-C devices? The HybridDrive adds two USB-A 3.1 Gen 2, full function USB-C, 4K60Hz HDMI with HDR, and SD and MicroSD ports, while also adding high speed solid-state storage. Available in capacities from 128GB to 2TB.
THE BEST Macbook
TwelveSouth’s protective skin sets give your laptop a whole new look, with wraps to cover the top, bottom, palm rests, and key caps of your MacBook. They come in aqua, black, coral, forest green, and deep rose color schemes. Currently available for the 13″ MacBook Pro (USB-C model), but keep an eye out for other models.
The Linedock is an external battery and USB-C hub that’s sized to fit under latest MacBooks and MacBook Pros. It also has optional 256GB or 1TB SSD storage. It has a 20,000mAh battery as well as 3 USB-C ports, 3 USB-A ports, SD card slot, HDMI and Mini DisplayPort.
Branch Designs’ port hub fit snugly on the side of the latest MacBook Pros. They take up both USB-C ports on either side and give you one USB-C port, an HDMI port, three USB 3 ports, a microSD slot and an SD slot. Available in two sizes: one for the 13″ and one for the 15″ MBP.
In Apple’s endless quest to reduce thickness and weight, they trimmed nearly all of the ports from the new MacBook Pro. HyperDrive brings them back, trading two USB-C ports for HDMI, microSD/SD, Thunderbolt 3, two USB 3.1 ports, and a USB-C port for good measure.
Satechi’s compact USB Type-C Hub has three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an SD card slot and a microSD card slot. Its size has some trade offs though. You can’t charge the new MacBook while this is plugged in, and it doesn’t supply enough power for tablets or external drives.
