"OWC today announced the OWC DEC, the first-ever expansion solution designed specifically for the 2016 Apple MacBook Pro. The OWC DEC is the finishing touch to a MacBook Pro, allowing users to take their laptops to the next level, extending the life and the functionality of the already-exceptional 2016 MacBook Pro. The DEC is the latest in OWC’s long line of upgrades for nearly every Mac made and continues the company’s legacy of providing the best solutions for Mac owners. The OWC DEC attaches completely flush to the bottom of the 2016 MacBook Pro, providing additional flash storage and connectivity, ultimately increasing the performance of MacBook Pros."

It sounds promising, but OWC might want to get some art that actually shows the ports - which I assume are in the rear? Looking at the photos now I think, "Oh great this uses a USB-C/TB port and gets me an SD card slot." Meh.

If I could see those other ports, I'd be happier... but I'm guessing the final layout hasn't yet been determined? Or are ya just teasing us Larry?

Also, obligatory photo reference:



Delayed thought: how much does it weigh?

Reddit was all over making fun of the design last night. Personally, I think it's pretty awesome. Especially if they can get some more battery in there....

How do you connect it to MBP? A short USB cable on the side? My Dell laptop has a connector on the bottom, which makes docking very fast and easy.

Also I think Jonny Ive is going to have a heart attack when he sees this!

I wonder why the OWC Thunderbolt 3 dock doesn't support USB 3.1g2.

so right now, it's just a drawing... I'd like to see this final product. Does it remove the bottom plate and replace it? Lots of detail missing... like where are the ports?
