Mac mini powered by the Apple M1 SoC (system on a chip) turns any monitor into a potent computer with the CPU, GPU, Neural Engine, and other hardware integrated into a very compact space. Easy to carry around for professionals and travelers, the Mac mini has a slight disadvantage if you are someone who likes to have the liberty of extending the internal storage space. However, Satechi has got you covered with the Mac mini USB-C hub, which also doubles as a stand for Apple’s portable PC rig.
The silver lining with the Satechi Stand & Hub for Mac mini with SSD enclosure is the matching design and silver finish – reminiscent of the 2020 M1 Mac mini. However, it is sized exactly like the Mac mini and looks a natural extension for Apple’s smallest desktop computer. This useful accessory for your Apple ecosystem increases the Mac mini’s storage without the need to depend on an external hard drive courtesy of the M.2 SATA SSD enclosure. Plug it into the USB-C port, and you get additional ports in one simplified hub. This accessory has three USB-C 3.0 ports (5Gbps), USB-C data port (5Gbps), SD and microSD card readers (104Mbps), and a 3.5mm headphone jack too.
All the ports and hubs are placed in front of the accessory, making it ultra-easy to plug in or take out things. The Satechi Mac mini hub and stand are designed to make up for what you miss out on the mac mini dual-monitor setup. If you own a Mac mini or considering buying one, this add-on is going to be a natural selection given the extended features it brings to Apple’s mini computer.
