Henge Docks introduced its newly-designed MacBook Pro Retina Vertical Dock at CE Week today. The dock enables you to instantly connect a MacBook to your desktop or home theater while opening up space on your desk and reducing cable clutter too. The resulting look is pretty sexy.
Setup is said to be easy, as the necessary cabling is preinstalled. All you need to do is connect the Apple MagSafe power adapter into the docking station. The dock provides two preinstalled multifunction Mini DisplayPort extensions, a Thunderbolt port, a USB 3.0 extension and TRRS audio cable. A cable organizer is built into the rear of the dock.
In addition to a home workspace, says the company, the Vertical Docking Station also works well in the living room by effectively turning the MacBook into a gaming or home theater device.
The 2.5-pound dock is made of high-density metal alloy, so it’s positioned as being solid and stable. “The metal construction of the dock offers a refined look to the dock and MacBook Pro with Retina Display as a single unit,” adds the company in a press release. Side and rear vents cool the device.
Pricing for the 13-inch and 15-inch Metal Edition is $119. A Glossy White edition is $89. Henge Docks’ Life After Device program provides ongoing support.
