Today the team received the first pre-production unit of the Horizontal Dock for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display from our manufacturing partner. This dock is the first testing unit that will be used by our engineering team to evaluate the second model in the Horizontal Dock family.
This will be the first of many quality assurance checks in the manufacturing process, and this and other pre-production units ensure that the eventual final product will meet our high design standards. Any changes or updates that need to be made will be communicated with our manufacturer throughout the coming months, thus beginning the first steps in the final stage leading to the manufacturing of production units.
We thank everyone for their continued enthusiasm for the Horizontal Dock. We couldn’t be more excited to have this unit in house, and look forward to the release of the Horizontal Dock for 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display later this year!
