Apple loves to simplify things. While they are doing wonders for design they often knock out important functionality. Take the newest Macbook’s and Macbook Pro’s. With the versatility of the USB-C port they felt the need to take away a lot of other functionality by decresasing the amount of ports. Luckily, Satechi has you covered with their new Type C Pro Hub. It’s a must have for any graduate headed to college with a new Apple laptop.

Satechi’s Type-C Pro Hub is for MacBook Pro  13” and 15”  models. The new hub acts as a missing puzzle piece, adding additional functionality to the new MacBook Pro by keeping its slim form factor, but adding missing ports users lost from the previous MacBook generation.

Satechi’s Type-C Pro Hub features:

  • Thunderbolt 3 port: This handy port allows for pass-through charging, for both 13” (61W) and 15” (87W) MacBook Pro models, and quick data transfer with speeds up to 40Gbps, all without sacrificing usage of other ports.
  • 4k HDMI port: Simply connect an HDMI cable from the Type-C Pro Hub to output crisp, 1080p high-resolution video  at 60Hz to external 4k monitor screens.
  • USB-C port: Additional USB-C port expands data transfer capabilities with speeds up to 5Gb.
  • Two USB 3.0 ports: Convenient USB 3.0 ports give users the freedom to transfer data from non-Type-C peripherals with speeds up to 5Gb.
  • SD/Micro card reader: Ideal for video and photo editing, the card reader slots provide data transfer speeds up to 104MB/s.

With its user-friendly design, simply plug and play to expand the MacBook’s capabilities. Boasting a sleek and compact brushed aluminum design, users do not have to sacrifice form over function.
