We can’t have it all. Apple’s ultra-thin MacBooks are off-the-charts beautiful (ya, I’m a fanboy), but that thinness comes with sacrifices in connectivity options. None of Apple’s current laptops (aside from the ancient 13-inch regular MacBook Pro) have an Ethernet port, while every model only gets 2 USB ports.

aukey-ethernet-usb-hub-sizeThis Aukey 3-Port USB 3 Hub with 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet usually sells for at least $19.99 on Amazon. Use coupon code CBH15PRO to drop your final price down to $15.99 Prime shipped.

Slip it into your travel bag or keep it on your office shelf and you’ll be able to get a hardwired internet connection or connect more USB devices to your Mac within seconds. Since it needs a USB port on your MacBook to connect, it’ll only add an extra 2 USB 3.0 ports to your workflow even though it has 3 ports. It’s rated 4.8 out of 5 stars and includes an 18-month warranty.

If you’re lucky enough to have a new 12-inch MacBook you’ll need a USB-C adapter to use this hub.

It’s a first world problem, I know, but it can be a real nuisance having to crane your neck to plug in a USB cable. Luckily a couple accessory makers have tackled this issue by moving the iMac’s USB ports to its front panel.

One deal we’re currently featuring solves this problem for just $6.17 Prime shipped, while another new product adds even more functionality but at a higher price point… expand full story
