The 12-inch MacBook is the ultimate portable Mac, but that single USB-C port feels a lot less convenient when you want to connect to a bunch of devices at home or in the office. We covered a $79 portable hub yesterday, and now OWC has announced its $129 desktop model, available for pre-order today for delivery in October.

Available in silver, space gray and gold, to match your MacBook, the OWC USB-C Dock provides a total of 10 ports in a unit designed to remain on your desk, allowing you to instantly connect and disconnect via a single USB-C cable … 

Unlike the Hub+, the OWC dock provides Gigabit Ethernet and audio in/out, as well as built-in HDMI, supporting 4K displays.

  • 4 USB 3 Type-A ports
  • 1 USB 3 Type-C port
  • SD card reader
  • HDMI with 4K display support
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Audio in and out ports

OWC claims 11 ports, but includes the connection to the MacBook.

The dock comes with an 80w power supply capable of charging your MacBook as well as all attached USB devices.
