For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with CalDigit to offer MacRumors a chance to win one of the company's TS3 Thunderbolt Station 3 docks.

The TS3, designed to connect to Apple's most recent Thunderbolt 3 Macs, features a sleek ribbed aluminum enclosure and adds a range of functionality to machines like the MacBook Pro with its wealth of ports.


At the back, the TS3 offers two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, two eSATA ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a DisplayPort, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports. At the front, there are audio in and audio out jacks, along with a third USB 3.1 Type-A port. All of the ports are accessible through a single connected Thunderbolt 3 cable, which also provides charging.

CalDigit's TS3 is one of the Thunderbolt 3 docks on the market that's able to offer full 85W charging to the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro, so there is no compromise to be made when it comes to charging speed.

It is compatible with all Thunderbolt 3 Macs and supports a single 5K monitor or dual 4K monitors.

We reviewed the TS3 earlier this year and we were impressed with the design and the balance of features it offers, along with the 85W charging, and it's one of the only docks to offer eSATA ports.

It looks great. But I still can't believe that one needs to spend hundreds of dollars to connect things I used to take for granted. To an overpriced (albeit great) laptop.

This looks fantastic. Wish I wasn't living in Canada!
I still need a dock that has minidisplay port for my old 24" LED ACD though....
What it lacks in the 'sleek' dept, it makes up for it by being one of the few docks charging at 85Watts.

But when can we expect to start seeing more docks featuring USB 3.1 Gen2 (@10Gbps) for a little future-proofing, considering the price of some of these hubs?

I have this and it is awesome, for anyone considering it - running a 43” 4K TV as a monitor and it rocks with my 2017 MBP. I bought from Amazon, FYI
