I hate tangled cables more than Bill Cosby hates consent. Not only are they bothersome to my productivity since I have a self-diagnosed case of OCD, it’s a pain to connect and disconnect my monitor(s), speakers, USB devices, and external Hard Drive every time I want to work in my office.
Since we have started to move away from bulky computer towers to svelte Ultrabooks, those ugly cables that were connected to our desktops (and were out-of-sight under our desks) have relocated to taking up real estate on top of our desks to connect to our laptops.
Enter the Elgato Thunderbolt 2 Dock that’s essentially a one-stop-shop for all the peripherals (and cables) you need to connect to your computer. With a total of 9 ports that can handle everything from:
- Gigabit Ethernet port
- Mic input and audio output
- 3 Super fast USB 3.0 devices
- Thunderbolt port to connect even faster 20mb/s devices
- HDMI port that can drive a monitor with up to 4K Resolution
…all that and just one Thunderbolt cable connected to your MacBook or Ultrabook to avoid to sea of connected cables taking up space, as well as dropping disconnected cables down in-between your desk and your wall.
All that to say, the Elgato Thunderbolt 2 Dock can bring some order and sanity back to your office desk. Just make sure your wife/significant other consents before you make a purchase.
