Belkin have announced their new Thunderbolt Express Dock. They are showcasing the device at CES in Las Vegas. It is designed for Apple Macintosh users, enabling the Macbook Air, Pro, Mac Mini and iMac users to connect multiple peripherals to a single connector.
This dock means Mac users can connect multiple USB devices, watch movies in 1080p and transfer huge amounts of data very quickly between devices.
Martin Avilla, general manager for Belkin’s Core Business Unit said “People purchase MacBook Airs and Ultrabooks for ultimate portability, but constantly plugging-in and unplugging numerous cable-connected peripherals is an annoying and time consuming ordeal, The Thunderbolt Express Dock provides a much-needed solution that creates a cleaner, faster, more productive workspace and reliable connectivity to desktop devices and the Internet.”
This will be released in September this year.
