5 Best Docking Stations for MacBook Pro

Laptops make life easier as they allow you to take them with you wherever you go. All the time that you used to waste while commuting can now be utilized because of laptops. May it be a long drive from office to home or a long journey via a flight; laptops have slowly become travel pals. Especially for the people who spend half their lives working on the system. This ease of working on the go should not be disgraced because of the missing legacy ports in your MacBook Pro.

Apple started removing all the legacy ports from MacBook Pros after the 2016 versions. Attaching other devices to MacBook Pro now requires a properly-equipped peripheral or a dongle, which makes computing messy and complicated. The best way to detangle your computing experience is by using a docking station.

5 Best Docking Stations for MacBook Pro

Mentioned below are some of the best docking stations to address the need for legacy ports, reduced USB-C dongles, and also attachment of multiple displays to your MacBook Pro.

Henge Docks Stone

Stone is specifically designed for your MacBook, and it is the only full-featured USB-C dock. It is a natural extension for all your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air.

May it be an external keyboard, monitor, mouse, or in fact, an external display for entertainment; the Henge Vertical Docking Station can attach it all. It allows you to charge your MacBook at a full 87 Watts over USB-C, with enough additional power to charge four connected USB devices.

HyperDrive Pro 8-in-2

Trying to blend with the sleek MacBook design, HyperDrive Pro is one of the best and affordable docking stations. It is compatible with all MacBook Pro models dating back to 2016 and packed with all the ports you can ask for.

All the possibilities have been put in to make it look similar to the MacBook Pro/Air with aluminum enclosure, Space Gray and Silver color, and the same design lines.

It includes 3 USB 3.1 ports, Ethernet, mini DisplayPort, audio/mic, SD card reader, 2 USB-C ports.

Elgato Thunderbolt 3

Elgato Thunderbolt allows you to connect everything at once and simultaneously charge your MacBook Pro with a single cable. This might not be the cheapest option available, but it sure is the best option along with a two-year warranty.

It includes 3 USB 3.0 ports with Qualcomm Quick Charge, two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, 50cm Thunderbolt cable, DisplayPort capable of 5k resolution, 4k at 60hz (2x 4K display possible via USB-C), Gigabit Ethernet, audio in and out.

It will be safe to say that Linedock is a must-have for visual professionals and creatives. This sleek, premium and 99% plastic-free docking station is designed to be tucked neatly under your MacBook Pro. It looks as if it is a part of your laptop. Linedock has a 20,000 mAh battery squeezed into a 0.9cm-thin chassis.

It includes nine ports, USB-C dock with a built-in SSD, and battery for the 13″ MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.

LandingZone USB-C Dock

LandingZone has the ability to transform the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar into a powerful and versatile workstation. It can connect multiple monitors to the HDMI 1, HDMI 2, Mini DisplayPort, or USB Type-C Passthrough port. One lacking feature is that this device is made up of plastic, which gives an unrefined, cheap look.

Now you can easily plug your MacBook Pro to various devices and external displays and make your Mac experience better.
