Currently many notebooks (such as Ultrabook and MacBook Air) make "thin" as the selling point, however, limited by the size and thickness, they are generally lack of extended capabilities. While lately ORICO offers a dock for these notebooks.
The dock is especially for the notebooks which employ USB 3.0 port, five downstream USB 3.0 ports are available through a USB 3.0 hub. Additionally it provides a DVI, a HDMI and one gigabit Ethernet interface. However, the pricing and launch time are not known.
