MacBook Pro without the Retina monitor did not go yet under a knife of Apple and continues to amuse own owners a large quantity of ports. This privilege owners of thin versions of the laptop are deprived, and often they should resort to the help of USB concentrators or docking stations. For all of them ZenDock — the usual and multipurpose "adapter" working with all "proshka" of the last years and costing any 140 dollars is created.
Zamesto of to close completely one of the parties of the laptop or all bottom, ZenDock is broken into two parts: base and the block with tips. The block occupies Thunderbolt, USB, Etherntet, FireWire and MagSafe ports. The cable from it stretches to base with 3 ports USB 3.0, separate миниджеками for earphones and a microphone, Mini-Display, Ethernet and FireWire port.
For owners Retina-makbukov is created by ZenDock Retina which block clings only to USB, two Thunderbolt-ports and charging port. The base too is poorer": three USB 3.0, Mini Display port and separate entrances for earphones and a microphone. Thunderbolt exit to base did not reach and remained on the block – to a descent behind the main cable. Both versions are made of integral pieces of aluminum (T6061) and anodized.
The base can be hidden in a case or somewhere at the table, or to hang up on a wall. Division of blocks plays into the hands: заместо 5 cables scattered on a table from this point it will be possible to manage one. Well and additional ports never will prevent.
A couple of days more back the project supported on only 7 тыщ dollars from demanded by forty. As much remained to this sum now – already thanks to the publication on MacRumors. Till the end of campaign there were 29 days, and all most profitable offers are at a discount already disassembled. While there were only options for 140 dollars, also for 160. If do not wish to invest at present, but are interested in purchase, prepare for official cost in 180 dollars. Deliveries will begin in October, 2013. [kickstarter]
