belkinusbccablePopular Apple accessory maker Belkin today announced a line of new cables and adapters designed to work with the newly announced 12-inch Retina MacBook, which ships with a single USB-C port.

Most notably, the company has announced a USB-C to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter, which will allow the 12-inch MacBook to be connected to Gigabit Ethernet networks using its USB-C port. Apple is not offering its own USB-C to gigabit ethernet adapter, so users who want that functionality will need a third-party accessory like this one. Belkin has not yet added the adapter to its website, but it will be priced between $19.99 and $29.99.

Belkin is also offering a range of other USB-C cables, which are listed below:

- USB-C Cable ($29.99)
- USB-A to USB-C Charge Cable ($19.99)
- USB-A to USB-C Cable ($29.99)
- USB-C to Micro USB-B Charge Cable ($19.99)
- USB-C to Micro USB-B Cable ($29.99)
- USB-C to Mini USB-B Charge Cable ($19.99)
- USB-C to USB-B Charge Cable ($19.99)

Belkin's cables and the Gigabit Ethernet Adapter will be priced between $19.99 and $29.99 and will ship early this summer.

Great to see the ethernet cable added :-)

To those whining about needing a bunch of cables, why buy this laptop then? there are so many others in apple's lineup, find one that suits your needs.

Have you ever stopped to think that maybe the issue isn't people being ignorant of other laptops in apple's lineup--and that the real thing going on here is that people would love to have a laptop that features the design/weight of the Macbook with legacy ports?

I've never understood why people are so quick to say this. It's pretty obvious people didn't just forget about the other models.

Apple doesn't just create jobs in the app business, but also in the cable and adapter business!

So do all of us ios users get to laugh at android users when they start switching over their phones to the C connector? Cause it sure was annoying when they laughed at us when lightning came out and yet we all knew their day would come.

I have a felling they'll be laughing at us when Apple dumps the lightning connector for USB-C, and we'll need all new accessories again.

Europe is after all really pushing Apple on the USB front are they not? And USB-C looks to be about the same size.
