Elgato Thunderbolt Dock connects everything to your laptop with one cable

elgatodock2The new Elgato Thunderbolt Dock is an easy way to connect your MacBook or ultrabook to all of your displays, drives and devices with just one cable.

The Elgato device is your gateway to connectivity and can be used to link to an external monitor, external hard drives, external keyboard, a printer, an external DVD drive and even your internet connection.

And all you have to connect to your laptop is a single Thunderbolt cable.

This is an ideal solution for laptop owners who use their computer on the move and return to their desk and connect it to all of their devices and peripherals and external monitor.

Usually you would have to connect all of these different cables one by one which would often discourage many users from taking their laptop out of the house.

The Elgato Thunderbolt Dock is 17.8cm long, 8cm wide and 2.5cm thick so it doesn’t take up much desk space.
