Satechi Launches USB-C Stand and Hub for Mac Mini
Satechi today announced the launch of its latest Apple accessory, a USB-C Stand & Hub for the Mac mini with SSD Enclosure, which is designed to combine the functionality of a stand with the additional ports in a hub.
According to Satechi, the Mac mini
Stand & Hub was designed to optimize the M1
Mac mini. It connects to a Mac mini over USB-C and adds three USB-A data ports, micro/SD card readers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, plus it supports an SSD for additional storage.
As with most Satechi accessories, the Mac mini Stand & Hub is made from a brushed silver aluminum alloy to match the color and design of the Mac mini. It is sized to the Mac mini, so it looks like a natural add-on to Apple's smallest desktop computer.
The Type-C Stand & Hub for Mac Mini with SSD Enclosure is available from Amazon or from the Satechi website for $99.99, with a 15 percent discount available when using the code MACMINISSD at checkout.

Edit: So what I meant is that 2 additional usb-c and maybe 1 usb-a might be more forward looking than three usb-a, but to each it's own.
Internal SSD enclosure only fits M.2 SSD drives, does not work with NVMe.
So it's only M.2 drives using SATA = maxing out at about 550 MB/s in transfer speed. Still OK for most needs I guess. :)
But I don't think I've seen a drive of that kind that goes beyond 2 TB. Could be wrong, though.
I’m guessing this dock is of the USB flavor, and is not of the thunderbolt variety? The article just mentions usb-c without mentioning the underlying protocol.
USB-A ports will not charge iPads or support SD readers, including Apple SuperDrive. We recommend connecting one bus-powered device at a time.
- USB-C data port - up to 5 Gbps, no charging/video
- 3 x USB-A data ports - up to 5 Gbps, does not support charging or CD readers, including Apple SuperDrive
It's a USB passthrough/splitter, still useful for connecting USB keys and what not, but still relatively limited because it's not a powered hub.
