Giveaway: Kanex DualRole USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet hub

10/28, 6:10pm

Kanex DualRole USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet hub

In the quest to make the thinnest, most lightweight notebooks, many manufacturers (like Apple) have removed many components that are quite useful or even essential if the notebook is being used on the road, or even as a desktop replacement. One of the casualties in this war on heavy notebooks has been USB ports. As the computers become thinner, they seem to be losing more and more USB ports. Kanex recently released the DualRole USB 3.0 three-port hub, which is designed to remedy this problem, and MacNN has three to give away to our readers.
