Unboxing the Henge Docks Horizontal Dock for 15″ MacBook Pro Retina

It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! It’s just like Christmas!!

I’ve been waiting for this product for well over three years. The Henge Docks Horizontal Dock for 15″ MacBook Pro has finally been released to Henge Docks Early Adopter program users.

The unboxing, shown above, goes over a few key features of the Horizontal Dock as well as gives a brief background on the project’s timeline. Here are some interesting elements I’ve learned after using the Dock for a short period of time and after having an Apple FaceTime call with Henge Docks itself:

  1. You can’t use any kind of hard shell case with version 1.0 Horizontal Dock Hardware
    Cases vary too much, and there was no way to insure that the dock would line up all of the ports when any kind of hard shell case is used
  2. The Dock’s button doesn’t turn the Mac on
    Apple doesn’t permit access to power through any of its ports, according to Henge Docks, so you have to dock the Mac, then open it up to turn it on, then close the lid if you want to run your Mac with ONLY external displays
  3. Dock App is very basic right now
    It doesn’t do much, but it should with additional releases of the app and with Dock firmware updates, scheduled for the coming weeks

I’ll have a full review of the Henge Dock’s Horizontal Dock for 15″ MacBook Pro Retina in the coming days and weeks. I’d like to wait until I’ve had a chance to get into the Dock a bit and Henge Docks has released a new version of Dock App and perhaps a new Dock firmware.

Between now and then, you can watch the unboxing or you can check out the pictures of my before and after setup, below.
