    Matrox today announced worldwide availability of the Matrox DS1 series of Thunderbolt docking stations that brings all the productivity benefits of a desktop computer to MacBook Pro and MacBook Air users.

    From a single Thunderbolt connection, users can add multiple peripherals including either a large DVI or an HDMI display, a full-size keyboard, and a mouse. A gigabit Ethernet port provides connectivity to a wired corporate network, enabling data transfers 18 times faster than Wi-Fi. One SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, conveniently located on the front of the unit, plus two USB 2.0 ports, a microphone input, and a speaker/headphone output are also provided. With its solid aluminum construction and space-saving design, Matrox DS1 is ideal for use in student residences, corporate environments, and home offices. Two versions are offered, one for use with DVI monitors and another for use with HDMI displays.

    "MacBook Pro and MacBook Air users can now come and go without disconnecting and re-connecting all their peripherals, tame the cables cluttering their desks, and save wear-and-tear on their computers," said Charles Amyot, product manager at Matrox. "One Thunderbolt connection to Matrox DS1 does it all!"

    Price and availability
    Priced at $249 US not including local taxes and delivery, Matrox DS1/DVI and Matrox DS1/HDMI are now available in the Americas through a network of authorized dealers. Worldwide availability is scheduled for early January 2013.

    That should be half the price... or, a lot more for the money. And why two versions. Should have both DVI and HDMI and DP on the same box. Poor show!
