Sometimes I wonder if the people at Satechi ever get any sleep. The company that designs countless handy accessories for Mac users has announced yet another useful gizmo. The latest accessory to leave the Satechi design studio is the new USB-C Slim Dock, designed specifically to fit Apple’s 2021 24-inch iMac.
It’s probably fair to say that the base model of Apple’s M1 iMac isn’t blessed with an ample selection of ports and connectors. This new dock has an enclosure for adding extra external storage to an iMac and provides convenient access to the most frequently used ports and peripherals.
The new Satechi USB-C Slim Dock can turn the 24-inch iMac into a well-connected computer. The dock offers a 10Gbps USB-C data port, a 10 Gbps USB-A data port, plus two USB-A 2.0 ports for connecting legacy peripherals like mice and keyboards. The dock also has SD and microSD card slots plus a built-in enclosure for NVMe and SATA drives.
The tool-free enclosure inside the dock can accommodate an NVMe or SATA M.2 SSD. The enclosure makes it quick and easy to install an M.2 SSD so that the iMac will have its storage instantly boosted for high-speed data transfers and swift backup procedures. The Satechi
Slim Dock also puts an end to fumbling around the back of an iMac to locate a spare USB port and it puts peripherals like mice and keyboards in a place that’s easier to reach.
The new iMac Slim Dock is available in silver and blue colorways. Its slimline design matches many other Apple products thanks to the use of a high-quality aluminum finish. Because the dock is made from aluminum, any heat produced is efficiently dissipated and the dock requires no special drivers or software.
Pricing & Availability: Satechi’s new USB-C Slim Dock for 24-inch iMac is available now in silver and blue colorways from Satechi and Amazon and is priced at $149.99. Until June 13, Satechi is offering an additional 20% discount by using the code IMAC20 at Satechi.net.
