Expands port options, Thunderbolt version coming in Q4

Henge Docks, well known for its MacBook Pro docking stations, has announced a new model at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas: the Horizontal Dock, a $249 combination riser and docking station specifically for the MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro. The new dock stands in stark contrast to the company's vertically-oriented AirDock and Henge Docks that allow users to run and hook monitors to MacBooks with the lid closed.

The new Horizontal Dock offers up to 14 ports in all, including expanding the number of USB 3.0 ports, doubling audio outputs and supporting up to three external displays. The dock is made of a metal frame with a Kensington security slot, and uses a four-point precision positioning system to align the built-in ports to the dock's expansion features.

The regular version offers a total of six USB 3.0 ports, two audio outputs, an Ethernet port, an SD card, power and a Firewire 800 connection. It is expected to ship in the third quarter of the year, with a Thunderbolt-enabled version for $100 more coming in the fourth quarter of 2013. Preorders for the regular version are bing taken now, compatible with the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air as well as the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

    Without Thunderbolt support, this thing is useless for a MacBook Pro with Retina Display (the correct name; Retina MacBook Pro is something somebody made up).
