Happy New Year! To kick off 2015, the Henge Docks team is very excited to announce that the Horizontal Docking Station for the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is available to order at HengeDocks.com!
The Horizontal Dock has been a labor of love involving every member of the Henge Docks team, and then some. What started out as a fairly simple idea evolved into something that was much more than originally envisioned, becoming so much more than just a docking station. This final product is far more robust than the first iteration of the dock we debuted at CES 2012. Functionality, materials and manufacturing methods were engineered to the highest standards. We could not be more enthusiastic about the Horizontal Dock!
While the chassis is similar, the internal components of the dock were completely redesigned. Our product engineers went back to the drawing board, and came back with a product that is beyond anything on the market for MacBooks. The Horizontal Dock is more powerful than ever, and will take your MacBook to a whole new level. It is not just a docking station, going beyond just connecting your peripherals. It is a continually evolving, intelligent solution for workspace clutter, both physically and digitally, blurring the lines between OS X and the hardware on a user’s desk.
With maximum port expansion (six USB 3.0, Thunderbolt 2, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, two TRRS Audio), SD Card Slot and Kensington Lock port), the Horizontal Dock allows for maximum connectivity and versatility, including support for up three external displays - eliminated is the need to connect and disconnect half a dozen peripherals each time you interact with your workspace. The Horizontal Dock is the first MacBook Docking Station to integrate power delivery and offer Thunderbolt 2.
In addition to internal sensors and clutches in the Horizontal Dock, the manufacturing tolerances for the port positioning are less than a tenth of a millimeter, ensuring accurate docking every time. Simply place your MacBook in the dock, touch the Cycle Button, and docking begins seamlessly. It couldn’t be any simpler! The dock charges your MacBook without any need for a MagSafe Power Supply via an included 127 Watt power supply that simultaneously supports MacBook power requirements, dock functions, and the charging of multiple high-powered devices, such as iPhone and iPad.
Alongside the release of the Horizontal Dock, Henge Docks is proud to announce our optional software pack, DockApp. Created to be used in conjunction with the Horizontal Dock, DockApp provides full integration with OS X; allows for firmware updates, automated docking, additional security, external drive eject, continual support and more.
With the release of the Horizontal Dock, Henge Docks is also launching our Early Adopter Program. By enrolling in this program, you will receive exclusive access to Henge Docks product rollouts, including both hardware and software updates. For the Horizontal Dock, members will receive an exclusive edition of the dock, that is uniquely made and of limited supply. These early adopter docks come with a special edition base plate noting your participation in the program. You will also receive your dock before the general public - early adopter docks will be express shipped from our manufacturer to our fulfillment center so that we can get them into your hands as fast as possible! Most importantly, your access will include the opportunity to work with our team and feedback platform to receive first access to new features of our DockApp and Horizontal Dock firmware.
