Buyer's Guide: Spring Gadgets Here Is What You Need To Make Your Life At Home And Onthego A Breeze By Claudia Paredes USB-C Slim Multi-port with Ethernet Adapter By Satechi Now more than ever there has been a need to turn your spare bedroom into your new office. It seems like you have everything ready to go. You have your mouse, your keyboard, a WiFi connection, and a monitor—however, your laptop is missing a few ports they once had. MacBooks, like the Microsoft Surface and Google Pixelbook have all gone the thinner route. Thinner means less weight, which is great when you are lugging your laptop on your morning commute, but when you need it at home it seems we find ourselves wishing some of those old ports would make a return. Satechi has come up with a solution that will keep your laptop thin and still give you all the desired ports…and more. The new USB-C Slim Multi-Port with Ethernet is made for laptops like the MacBook Air which use a USB-C connection to charge. The MacBook Air is a key beneficiary from Satechi's new product. Currently, the MacBook Air only has two USB-C ports and one headphone jack. This is not enough to create your dream office space at home. The USB-C Slim Multi-Port with Ethernet will connect to one of those USB-C ports and give your laptop seven new ports. There is one Ethernet port on the end—this is great, because it allows you to have a hard connection to the internet for all those inevitable video conferences—and six ports on the front. The HDMI port supports 4K resolution for your external display. You can plug your mouse and keyboard into the two USB ports. If you're laptop also charges through USB-C, no worries. Satechi has included a USB-C PD port on the hub itself with pass-through charging. This allows you to power the laptop and take advantage of all the additional ports through a single connection. And when you are ready to download some photos from your DSLR or phone use the micro/SD card reader to get them on your laptop. With one simple outlet, your laptop has gained seven new connections and endless possibilities. This hub is what anyone working from home needs, plus it's very slim so it won't take up any space on your desk, and it's available in three colors to match your unique aesthetic.
