Update: Horizontal Dock for 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display

Today the team received the first pre-production unit of the Horizontal Dock for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display from our manufacturing partner. This dock is the first testing unit that will be used by our engineering team to evaluate the second model in the Horizontal Dock family.

This will be the first of many quality assurance checks in the manufacturing process, and this and other pre-production units ensure that the eventual final product will meet our high design standards. Any changes or updates that need to be made will be communicated with our manufacturer throughout the coming months, thus beginning the first steps in the final stage leading to the manufacturing of production units.

We thank everyone for their continued enthusiasm for the Horizontal Dock. We couldn’t be more excited to have this unit in house, and look forward to the release of the Horizontal Dock for 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display later this year!

Here we are, almost into August. Once again asking for a status update on the 15in Horizontal. I am having my doubts this will come in 2015 now.

@Dean – there is a power supply that comes with the dock that must be plugged in to use the dock. There is no way to battery power the dock.

Hi, before I purchase I just wanted to know how the power works? I want to use this dock in a mobile setup but I want to use the laptops’s battery rather than from the mains supple, is this possible. Also, if I did have batteries to power the dock, what amounts of watts will it consume. It would be awesome if it could be plugged in to the mains but also work without power!

So, if shipments to the early adopters are running late, does that meant that those of us slated for a delivery in June are going to be pushed out to mid-summer?

Do you have a status update for the early adopters for the 15" horizontal dock? You said shipment in early May and we are getting towards late May. Just wanted to have an update as I might be out of the country mid-June and was hoping to have this dock by then.

@Grzegorz – most of our customers purchase a separate MagSafe power adapter, so they have one to keep in the vertical dock, and one that they travel with. However, with our forthcoming Horizontal Dock, the power is included, so that won’t be necessary!

Great ,but for me is one isuue to correct. When macbook is connected by hendge dock then needs power on, without power on you don’t see anything. I don’t need for every time charge my macbook when i want use hendge dock. When you need take mac for long time you need buy second power supply, because i don’t imagine myself disconnect every time when i need to charge my mac on the go.
If you have a solvation this problem (for me) please send by mail.

Can you please develop an USB-C mini-dock solution for new 12" retina MacBook? I will be your immediate customer if you do something like:

- travel / portable dock with USB-C input, and 3-4 Outputs: Type-A/C USB ports, mDP port, Ethernet Port.

As you know, rMB will come with a single USB-C port and the product is in dire need of a docking solution.
