OWC DEC will improve the MacBook Pro 2016, making it thicker [video]
The owners of the new MacBook Pro, which has no interfaces except USB-C, it is possible to bring the laptops to the state more with the word “Pro” in the title. This opinion is shared by the company OWC, which produces various accessories for Apple. At CES 2017, the company presented a new dock called OWC DEC.
The expansion unit DEC OWC is attached to the laptop from the bottom, forming with it one whole. Inside is SSD-drive capacity up to 4 TB, and slots for SD cards, USB ports-A connector for a wired connection to a Gigabit Ethernet network.
It is easy to guess that the cost of such a generous “bonus” was the compactness, but rather, the thickness of the laptop. However, as noted by OWC, the thickness of the MacBook Pro DEC is approximately equal to MacBook Pro 2012.
At CES 2017, the company showed a prototype of a docking station for the 15-inch MacBook Pro models. According to the head of OWC Larry, the development of the project lasted about three years. Apparently, the company was just waiting for the right moment.
Sale OWC DEC in two colours Silver and Space Gray will start this spring. Then there will be detailed information about the new product and will be named its price. The company noted that the docking station will be cheaper than the option to upgrade the laptop to 2 TB from Apple.
