Henge Docks Introduces Docking Stations for the MacBook Air

11-inch and 13-inch MacBook AirsHenge Docks (www.hengedocks.com), the leading supplier of docking stations for Apple notebook computers, announces its latest addition, vertical Docking Stations for the MacBook Air, at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show. The MacBook Air Dock allows users to incorporate the MacBook Air into a desktop setup or home theater system, so users get the best features of a laptop, desktop and media center PC all from one computer.

The Vertical Docking Stations for the MacBook Air line are Henge Docks’ first to feature fully integrated ports, right out of the box with no additional setup. Integrated ports combined with a sturdy, rubberized cradle for a precision fit means a smooth, accurate docking experience allowing users quickly connect and disconnect their peripherals in one easy motion. Henge Docks’ unique vertical orientation saves desk space while showcasing the svelte profile of the MacBook Air.

“We are excited to add the MacBook Air Dock to Henge Docks’ line of docking station solutions,” said Matthew Vroom, CEO. “The MacBook Air is a fantastic machine and we feel that our new docking station takes the Air to the next level by eliminating the cable clutter that plagues today’s workspaces.” With the addition of the MacBook Air Dock, Henge Docks now offers a docking station solution for every Apple notebook currently in production.

The Henge Docks’ design doesn’t require any hardware, software or settings changes to your computer, and every current MacBook is compatible with the system, right from the factory.

The MacBook Air Dock comes in two sizes – 11 inches or 13 inches. Both models feature Mini DisplayPort and USB pass-through.

The MacBook Air Dock will retail at $55 for the 11-inch model and $60 for the 13-inch model. Both models are available for preorder starting today, January 10th 2012 at www.hengedocks.com.

    Nice design.

    Will I be able to use my Apple Thunderbolt display (with full Thunderbolt signal and features) through the “Mini DisplayPort pass-through” of this docking station ?

    Thanks for your answer.

  • Nobody says:

    Cool! Is it compatible with the original MacBook Air (the one with the flip-down door for the USB/DisplayPort connectors)?

  • p says:

    I’m still waiting on my order placed on Jan 9. Did it ship? I did not get a shipping confirmation. I don’t have a tracking number. Trying to contact you for follow-up. Sorry – Just want to know what I should do? I’ve sent a few inquiries already.

      Hi Pat,

    Like the look of this product. One thing which would be a really nice addition would be an integrated USB hub and/or integrated RJ45 interface. Sure that would raise the cost, but I think it would be worth it. RJ45 would be especially useful since even 100Mb/s wired is usually better for serious desk use than WiFi. Any chance of adding that?

  • Akhil says:

    When is this coming out? Been waiting since CES and have pre-ordered 2 times but still no update. Please advice.

    Thanks,
    Akhil

  • Jeff says:

    I have same question as Franck, how does your dock work with the Thunderbolt display? Does the display even work, or does it work and just not all the options on back of the monitor (USBs, Ethernet, etc).

    Thanks!

    • Matt says:

      When hooked up to our MacBook Pro docking stations a Thunderbolt Display will retain all of its functionality.

  • Inportiant says:

    2 questions!

    1. does the henge docking station support TUNDERBOLT – HDMI? even HD at all ?
    2. what product is needed for me to connect my henge docingstation to an HD screen?

    Please reply APAP:)

  • Ultrabooks — often regarded as the Windows camp’s answer to the MacBook Air, but really just a marketing term to describe thin, lightweight laptops. (In my day they were called ultraportables, but whatever.)

  • Rick says:

    I’m trying to purchase this from Amazon buts its very unclear as to which Macbook air Henge Dock is the latest version with the 2012 Macbook air

    Could I trouble you for the exact model number?

    is it HD01VB13MBA?

    Thanks

    I am looking to purchase a macbook air dock to integrate into my home theater system. Does the dock supper audio without he use os a separate Aux cable.

    • Chelsea A says:

      Our MacBook Air Docks come equipped with a USB cable and Mini DisplayPort cables, which they has pass-through ports for. You would need your own audio cable.
