Elgato debuts $230 Thunderbolt Dock

updated 01:45 pm EDT, Thu April 3, 2014

Also include HDMI, USB 3.0, Ethernet ports

Elgato has released the Thunderbolt Dock, its own entry for MacBook owners looking to expand connection options. The peripheral includes two Thunderbolt ports, the second enabling passthroughs to other Thunderbolt devices. Also present are three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and Ethernet connections, and headphone and microphone jacks.

Accompanying the Dock is an OS X menu bar utility, which serves the double purpose of ejecting connected devices while enabling high-powered USB connections for faster charging. The hardware is launching today on Amazon, at a cost of $230 for a version with a bundled Thunderbolt cable. People who don't need the cable can get a cheaper $200 version.

    According to the linked website, the price is 229.95€, not $. That would work out to US$315.19 at the current exchange rate.

    I just checked out the link. I'm guessing it's displaying to you the appropriate currency and price depending on your location. I see it listed for $229.95.

    Yup, definitely $230 in the US.

    Chalk this up (along w/ others announced at MacWorld this week) to new technology. $230 for a port hub is a bit steep in my book...I'll wait a year for the price to lower a bit.

    Galley is right that 229.95€ does not equal $230, but I guess as a US based company Elgato has opted to make it cheaper here than elsewhere (this is a common practice among US companies).

    Elgato is German. German price includes 19% VAT.
