Absolutely you appreciate the ultra thin, ultra lightweight physics of MacBook Air, but feel kind of constrained when it comes to the expandability and connectivity. Apricorn AND-DVDRW-500ME NetDock turns your MacBook into a full-fledged desktop with a single USB connection. First it's a DVD burner, enabling you to initiate an installation from CD/DVD, watch a DVD or burn a DVD/CD. A 4-port USB hub allows you to connect multiple USB peripherals at once, which is mission impossible on the MacBook itself. Beyond competitors of its kind, this NetDock also acts as an external enclosure and comes with a 500GB HDD built in for extra large storage close at your hand. A high gloss, candy red enclosure and space saving vertical stand make it a great match for your MacBook Air, and allows a seamless fit whether at home or at your office.
Latest Optical Engine
The Aegis NetDock’s optical drive is perfect for installing the latest software, playing games or watching a DVD. Need to burn your latest iMovie or iLife project to a DVD?
