This is the product every MacBook Pro user needs if they can’t get along just with USB-C ports. It’s a beautifully designed docking station that with one click adds 16 more ports to the Pro models with Touch bar..
This latest LandingZone Docking Station is the most advanced model and most feature-rich of all docking stations, regardless of manufacturer. It will transform the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar into a powerful and versatile workstation. It addresses one of the major limitations of the new MacBook Pros, the lack of non-USB-C ports. As a result, it can be used instead of needing a variety of dongles.
When docked, the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar will have access to USB 3.1 Type-C ports, USB 3.1 Type-A ports, HDMI port, Mini DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet, Audio port, SD Card Slot, and a Micro SD Card Slot. A Kensington Security Slot is also included so that the MacBook Pro can be secured.
