Satechi Aluminum Type-C Pro for 2016 MacBook Pro

MacRumors reports about the release of a hub with Thunderbolt 3 pass-through by Satechi. As Mitchel Broussard (author of the piece) notes, it’s an upgrade to the similar Satechi hub for the 12″ MacBook. But oh boy, it looks almost exactly like the HyperDrive that we reviewed some time ago. Let’s put them side by side:

But then again, who cares? The consumer is winning here. More choice! Plus, the last time we reviewed a Satechi product, we were pleasantly surprised by the build quality. It looks like this new hub is also milled from a single piece of aluminum, but we hope to update you when we get our hands on this product.

Order from the Satechi website ($99) or have a look at our current choice of hubs.
