Like all Satechi products, the Aluminum Stand & Hub has an aluminum design that's meant to match the aluminum of Apple devices for a streamlined desktop look. When not in use, it folds down for storage or for transport.

The Aluminum Stand & Hub for ‌iPad‌ can be purchased from the Satechi website or from Amazon.com for $99.99. Those purchasing directly from Satechi can get 20 percent off through June 6 by using promo code IPADPRO at checkout.

Pretty bad when you need a separate device for the connections necessary.
Tired argument.

This is for a specific user who might need it... most won't.

Why not just get a current MacBook Air or Pro which definitely has HDMI, USB A, SD, micro SD, a touchscreen, and Apple Pencil support?!

They have Apple Pencil support now? Wow, I completely missed that. How the heck do you write on the screen though? Seems like it would be extremely difficult.
AngerDanger was being funny. Neither the current MacBook Air or Pro have HDMI, USBA, SD, micro SD, a touchscreen or support for Apple Pencil.

Most people don’t need any ports. Some need one, and a small minority need multiple.

I'm sure it will be welcome by some users. My favorite still is their Aluminum Desktop Stand, which is amazing!
I like the fact it can be adjusted to almost every angle, so it's comfortable to use with the Apple Pencil to draw, signed documents or edit photos.
