Okay seriously, Apple, what is going on with you right now? We love the new MacBook Pro 2016 models, which are far and away the most sleek and stunning laptop computers that the world has ever seen at this point. The specs are solid, the displays are best-in-class, and the Touch Bar is also a nifty addition. But did you really have to ditch every single port that people want to use?
We already told you how to add a MagSafe charger back to the MacBook Pro 2016, and now it’s time to bring back all the other ports that Apple’s new high-end laptops are missing.
You’ve got a bunch of different options when it comes to bringing ports back to your new Mac, but the worst possible options are buying any of the dongles that Apple sells. Seriously… Apple charges an insane amount of money for its adapters. For example, a dongle with just one USB 3.0 port, one HDMI port and USB-C charging pass-through costs $70. $70! No, no, no.
Check out these options instead:
The AUKEY USB C Hub 3 adds three standard USB 3.0 ports, one Ethernet port and one USB-C port for charging, all for $25.
Then there’s the AUKEY USB C Hub 4, which includes four USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port and one USB-C port for charging and costs $35.
Want the SD card reader back? Two great options are the $20 HooToo Shuttle with three USB 3.0 ports and an SD card reader, and the $30 Cynergy USB C Hub with two USB 3.0 ports, one USB-C port, an SD card reader and a microSD card reader.
