As Apple’s new MacBook Pros continue to make their way out into the world, people are coming to grips with the new port situation in different ways. Some have chosen dongles. Others are relying on docks. Now, we have yet another option, the Line Dock.

The Line Dock is an Indiegogo project that mostly looks like someone took an old MacBook Pro and ripped off the screen. It offers three USB ports, HDMI, MiniDisplay Port, and of course, a USB-C port to connect it to your MacBook or MacBook Pro. (A Micro-B USB port is also included to connect the Line Dock to a non-USB-C laptop.) Still not enough ports?
