First Look: The MacBook Air gets a Thunderbolt dock at last

0:52 /

For $199, the Landing Zone adds Ethernet, extra USB ports and the ability to connect multiple displays, all while keeping a low profile at a desk.

Hi. I'm Scott Stein and, you know, there really aren't that many MacBook Air docks that use Thunderbolt no less; but there is one, the LandingZone, that cost $199 that seems to do the job really nicely. Connect it with the [unk] on the side of your MacBook Air, Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 or 2.0 and it keeps you [unk] internet, USB 3.0 ports, the ability to just connect to multiple monitors and a Kensington lock connector. All of that in a pretty nice package that really sits underneath your MacBook Air and allows it to not take up a lot of room as far as a footprint [unk]. It adds a couple of features and ports you'd probably want in your MacBook Air anyhow. While you might be waiting for other docks like this to arrive, this one's actually here. Stay tuned or a review on CNET sometime soon. I'm Scott Stein and that's a look at the Landing Zone, a dock for the MacBook Air.
