If you go for one of the new Thunderbolt 3 Pros, I recommend dropping one of these CalDigit TS3 Plus docks on your desk.

They have built-in power supplies that give your MBP a full 85W while powering everything else too. You can connect pretty much everything with a single Thunderbolt 3 cable—a couple 4K monitors, a backup drive and several other 5/10 Gbps USB devices, Ethernet, optical and analog audio, the works.

All this and it barely gets warm.

@zigg that looks pretty neat! have you tried all of the ports?

@phessler I don’t have things for _all_ the ports 😅

I actively use DisplayPort (1x), and a few USB-A things. I’ve used the analog audio and Ethernet on occasion.

@zigg I really like tha they have an sd card reader on the front. such a thoughtful feature.
