Mac fans will know why you need a Satechi Aluminum Type-C Clamp Hub Pro. Macs are fantastic machines, and those who regularly use them have few—if any—complaints. Ranking at the top of not really a complaint but maybe something that could be improve on is the placement of ports. It’s not that the ports are inaccessible; they’re just on the back of the Mac. It’s more a convenience issue. When you need to plug in a drive or other device, you either have to reach around and blindly try to plug it in, or you have to turn the computer around. Often, there isn’t room to turn the computer, so you have to turn it as much as you can, then crane around yourself to get to the ports. Satechi addresses that with their hub.
The clamp hub has the iconic brushed aluminum finish, so it will match your Mac perfectly. Or, if you prefer, you can pick up the clamp hub in space grey. The hub features a USB-C port, three USB 3.0 ports, and a Micro/SD card reader slot. It’s designed to work with the 2017 iMac models with USB-C ports, which includes the 2017 iMac Pro, iMac Retina 4k, and the 27-inch 5K models.
What’s slick about this hub is that it uses an adjustable knob to clamp the hub right to your Mac, and then it connects with a single plug-in. No more struggles plugging in!
