Satechi launches a trio of multiport adapters for M1-powered Apple Mac computers

When Apple went all-in on USB-C/Thunderbolt with its MacBook computers, many people were upset. True, USB-C is the future, but the problem is, we don't live in the future -- we exist in the present. And so, consumers were forced to buy dongles and adapters to use their accessories. Need an Ethernet connection? Buy a dongle. Want to to read an SD card? Buy a dongle. Trying to connect a USB-A mouse? Buy a dongle. You get the point.

Thankfully, in 2021, Apple brought some previously eliminated ports back to the MacBook Pro. For instance, the newest laptops have an SD card reader and HDMI video. What they still lack, unfortunately, are Ethernet and USB-A. If you need those things, you will still need to invest in dongles and adapters.

Today, Satechi launches a trio of multiport adapters that are designed for M1 Mac computers. While they should work with some Intel Mac computers and Windows machines too, the company strongly suggests devices with Apple Silicon are the real focus. One of the new products is a stationary/home dock that uses Thunderbolt, while the other two are portable USB-C multiport adapters.
