Users can select specific connections
Henge Docks has unveiled a series of docking stations designed for Apple's latest MacBooks and MacBook Pros. The devices allow notebook computers to be integrated into desktop systems or home theater configurations. Each model offers a flexible system capable of connecting USB, Ethernet, audio, mini DisplayPort, FireWire, and MagSafe cables.
Users can choose to utilize only the connections required for a specific setup, as individual connectors can be added to the dock as needed. Notebooks are placed vertically in the dock, with the lid closed to maintain a thin profile. The company appears to offer only analog audio cords for the docks, without an option for optical Toslink cables supported by certain MacBook Pros.
Henge is currently shipping docks for 13-inch unibody MacBooks, ranging from late 2008 to current models, with prices set at $60 and $65 depending on the model. The company is allowing customers to sign up to pre-order docks for plastic MacBooks dating as far back as 2006, 15-inch unibody MacBook Pros, and 17-inch MacBook Pros.
