Whether it's your MacBook, your Microsoft Surface, your iPad, or something else, chances are you've found times when it would have been so helpful to connect it to power, a monitor, a keyboard and mouse, a memory stick, an SD card reader, a printer, or something else - there's certainly no shortage of USB options you might want to use.
Or, perhaps you've been happy working at a desk untethered to all these things but might not realise the flexibility that a good dock can give you. Work on your laptop while on the road, but come back to your base - whether office or home - connect one cable, and suddenly you're transformed into a desktop-like setup replete with big screen, full-size keyboard, and luxurious mouse. Consider your eyes, your posture, and of course, the screen real estate that's available.
Here's where Aten comes in; Aten is well-known for its computing accessories and its latest dock brings the quality and usefulness you expect from ATEN.
