LAS VEGAS--For those looking to get more ports out of their Thunderbolt-equipped notebooks, Belkin's got a box on the way to make that happen.
At CES here, the company gave its Thunderbolt Express Dock product a price and a release date.
For $299, those with a Mac or PC featuring a single Thunderbolt port can add a handful of other ports, all of which get piped through the speedy I/O. That includes three USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire 800 port, a 3.5mm audio plug, gigabit Ethernet, and HDMI.
The new hardware, which hits stores in September, made its debut at last year's Intel Developer Forum with the promise of being available this spring.
A number of Thunderbolt peripherals that have hit the market so far have included a spare Thunderbolt port for daisy-chaining.
