Silicon Valley-based company LandingZone has unveiled its new Docking Station for the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros with Touch Bar. The company includes engineers and designers who have worked with Apple, IDEO and Samsung, all of whom had a hand in getting its new docks to market. With a massive 16 ports, it completely eliminates the need for dongles while providing users with plenty of connectivity options.

Apple's latest MacBook Pros come with only four USB-C ports. As such, it can be annoying to add a dongle for each peripheral that you might want to use while we all wait for USB-C peripherals to become more common. The LandingZone Docking Station addresses these shortcomings with 16 ports and other features:

  • 3 USB 3.1 Type-C Ports (Data Only / No Video)
  • 2 USB 3.1 Type-A Ports (Data Only)
  • 1 USB 3.1 Type-A Port (Data & 1.5A High Speed Charging)
  • USB Type-C Passthrough Port
  • HDMI Port (3840 x 2160 @ 30Hz)
  • Mini DisplayPort & HDMI Port (3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz)
  • Gigabit Ethernet Port
  • SD Card Slot
  • Micro SD Card Slot
  • Two-way Audio Port
  • Built-in Kensington Security Slot compatible with all the Kensington Laptop Locks (sold separately) to secure the MacBook
  • 3-Color LED Status Indicator Light
  • 96W LandingZone Power Adapter to charge the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and power the docking station

Although the The LandingZone Docking Station omits Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, it keeps a port free on either side of your MacBook Pro, so you can still add Thunderbolt 3 peripherals should you choose. It is retailing for US$299 on the company's website with an Education Discount available for eligible students.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
