Usb Hub For Mac Mini

USB-C Hub with Hard Drive Enclosure, Hagibis Type-C Docking Station & Stand for Mac Mini with SATA, USB 3.0, SD/TF Card Reader and USB 2.0 Ports for MacBook Pro Air Laptop 4.4 out of. The AH430 aluminum hub works very well with my 2012 iMac running OS X 10.9.3 Mavericks. When both USB 2 & USB 3 devices are plugged into the hub, it will appear in the System Information app as two hubs, one on a 'USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Bus' with the USB 3 items attached to it, & the other on a 'USB Hi-Speed Bus' with the USB 2 items attached to that.

When it first came out in 2005, the diminutive Mac mini was a game-changing computer. Sure, it was woefully under-powered, but never before could you buy a Mac for $499. It truly allowed any consumer to jump into the Apple desktop world -- something previously reserved for those with large bank accounts.

While the newest Mac mini (introduced in 2018) is still small and fairly affordable, the $499 starting price is long gone. Instead, it now costs a minimum of $799 to get a Mac. Sigh. Sadly, even with a higher price, one of the most glaring issues to plague the Mac mini in 2005 is still an issue 14 years later -- there are no front ports! Apple chose to hide all the connectors on the rear -- the company often chooses form over function. Thankfully, the new 2-in-1 Mac mini stand and hub from Satechi solves this problem while retaining the elegant design.

'The first of its kind stand and hub elevates and transforms the Mac Mini into a powerful and surprisingly compact workstation that lets users get the most of valuable desk space. Satechi’s stand and hub features a sleek, elegant design that feels like a natural extension to the Mac Mini. Its patent pending design uses a single Type-C connection to function both as a stand and a USB hub with six expansion ports,' says Satechi.

The company further says, 'Satechi’s hub and stand solution expands the capabilities and functionality of the Mac Mini. It includes a USB-C data port, three USB 3.0 ports, micro/SD card readers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack port for convenient access to essential peripherals. Its also equipped with built-in air vents to help regulate temperature and encourage airflow when connecting multiple devices to the Mac Mini.'

Believe it or not, despite its beautiful design and usefulness, the Satechi Type-C Aluminum Stand and Hub for the 2018 Mac mini is reasonably priced at just $79.99. Quite frankly, it is a product that pretty much any owner of Apple's newest Mac mini should take a look at. If you want your own, you can buy it here now.

The new Satechi aluminum hub is made to precisely fit underneath the Mac mini and also act as a stand. It brings a series of ports, including a micro SD card reader, to the front of the computer.

Technology accessory maker Satechi has released the Type-C Stand and Hub for the 2018 Mac mini. It's a slimline hub that brings a series of ports to the front of the 2018 Mac mini, while also raising the computer off the desk.

Both sized and colored to look part of the Mac mini, the Satechi hub brings a micro/SD card reader to the Mac mini for the first time.

The hub is connected at the rear of the Mac mini by a built-in USB-C cable that plugs into a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Via that connection, it replicates some of the Mac's rear connectors and presents them in a more convenient location at the front of the machine.

So without reaching around or moving the Mac mini, users have quick access to a single USB-C port, three USB 3.0 ports, the micro/SD card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Satechi says that the hub and stand is also fitted with built-in air vents to regulate the temperature of the unit when multiple devices are plugged in at the same time.
