Satechi’s iPad Pro hub allows you to use your iPad as if it were a genuine desktop computer.
Satechi’s latest gadget is both a stand and a USB-C hub, designed for 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models and 2020 iPad Air with a USB-C charging port. The brand’s new product is aimed at new users of the Apple-branded tablet of the same name, turning it into a dedicated desktop productivity solution.
Priced at $100, when the tablet is inserted into the stand, it should look more like a traditional monitor, so you can continue to pretend it is a real desktop replacement. Like any hub, it provides you with some additional ports for expanding the functionality of the iPad.
This includes an HDMI port capable of outputting 4K at a refresh rate of up to 60Hz, a USB-A data port, a USB-C PD port with up to 60W charging power, a headphone jack, and separate slots for SD and microSD card.
The Satechi aluminum stand and hub for iPad Pro may become a must-have for digital professionals who want to enjoy a powerful desktop-friendly user experience without neglecting basic mobility. (Via)
