Henge Docks has refreshed its horizontal and vertical docking stations for the new MacBook Pro with USB-C ports, and has also announced an all-new Thunderbolt 3-connected Tethered Dock product line.




The Henge collection -- including the Tethered, Vertical and Horizontal Stations -- are all designed to easily connect the MacBook Pro to external devices, such as monitors, keyboards and speakers.

Both the Vertical and Horizontal Docking Stations have pass-through connections for the computer's Thunderbolt 3 ports, and come in a matching space gray shade with metal design.

Henge's Horizontal Docking Station also has automated docking capabilities, as well as 13 expansion ports that include support for up to four external displays, power, and the Kensington Lock security system.

  • Vertical Docking Station
  • Horizontal Docking Station

Tethered Docking Station

Henge designed the Tethered Docking Station to match the MacBook Pro's design and form, with a space grey, solid metal chassis and an ergonomic, angled design that allows users to rest the laptop directly on the docking station. It can pair with the Vertical Docking Station and is available in either USB-C or Thunderbolt 3.




It also has an 85-watt power supply and expansion ports that include USB 3 ports, two Mini DisplayPorts, SD card reader, Gigabit Ethernet, audio port and USB-C or Thunderbolt 3.




The Tethered Docking stations with USB-C connectivity ship in March starting at $199. The Vertical Henge Dock with USB-C will ship in the Spring for $149, while the Horizontal version starts at $499. Pricing and availability for Thunderbolt 3 models has yet to be announced.

    Henge makes beautiful docks. A little pricy but the damn best, in the business. When I decide to upgrade my 2015 rMBP, I will seriously consider one of these.

    The tethered docking station looks like the bee's knees!  Consistent with Apple's design philosophy and future proof too. All three are beautiful.

    Sad that they will be docking to those lovely looking LG displays.

    So the large dock is $500, only a few hundred dollars less than refurbished macbook air ports, complete with computer, monitor, keyboard, trackpad... "http://www.apple.com/shop/browse/home/specialdeals/mac/macbook_air/13" And indeed these docks are marketed with the beautiful monitors Apple also eliminated. I bought a mbp - regrettably to date it has been more of a paperweight spending more time trying to figure out what it might work with than actually working. In theory, should it or could it actually be the reverse? "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderbolt_interface#Thunderbolt_3"

    I wish the vertical one had more hub functionality rather than just pass through.
