LandingZone: A Dock With All Of The Bells And Whistles For Your MacBook Air



The LandingZone is a dock for the MacBook Air that boasts a Mini DisplayPort, 4 USB ports, an Ethernet port, and a handy clamp or managing cables and your power cord. There’s also support for the Kensington lock cords so you’re MacBook Air stays safe.

For $200, the LandingZone looks like a pretty solid docking station for your MacBook Air. The project on Kickstarter is needing to reach its $50,000 goal before shipping begins, and pledging right now guarantees you a unit when they roll off the production line.

LandingZone is a docking station for the MacBook Air.  We love the MacBook Air for its beauty and functionality.  The MacBook Air deserves a docking station that’s just as beautiful and functional.  So we designed one and we think it’s pretty cool.  We hope you agree.

  • Total of 4 USB 2.0 ports; no need to attach a separate USB hub
  • Built in 10/100T Ethernet port; no more dongles for the Ethernet or fumbling with the cable
  • Built in Mini DisplayPort capable of driving resolution up to 2560×1440
  • Built in locking port compatible with all the Kensington Locks; now you can secure your MacBook Air
  • Two models to support either the 11″ or 13″ version of the MacBook Air (2010 or later)
  • Beautifully designed and engineered for simplicity, elegance, reliability and functionality (patent pending)
  • Comes with US power adapter which accepts wide range of input voltage (100~240 Vac)

The dock works with the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air and the design keeps your laptop elevated to help with cooling.

The only major thing missing from the LandingZone is support for Apple’s Thunderbolt technology. Bummer.
