The headline should probably read, “Got data? And money?” Storage device-maker Apricorn released on Thursday what it bills as the largest-ever portable encrypted solid state drive. It holds 20TB of data and costs $12,999.
But don’t worry, you can get a much smaller one for as little as $239.
Linedock 16” is for anyone who’s ever thought, “I wish my MacBook had more ports and a longer battery life. And more storage!” The docking station fits under your notebook and adds ten ports, a 99.9Wh battery and up to 2TB of storage.
I tested the version of Linedock for 16-inch MacBooks. It totally blew my socks off.
Even in a world where everything can be stored in the cloud, there’s still a role for an external drive. Especially if it’s high-performance, and can go anywhere.

Here’s how this newly-released peripheral stands up to real-world use with a range of computers.
The Samsung T7 holds an amazing amount of data considering its svelte design. This Solid State Drive isn’t much bigger than a business card but holds up to 2TB. And it can be passed around between multiple computers — it’s compatible with Mac and iPad Pro, as well a wide variety of other devices.
I loaded up this recently-released SSD with a variety of files and put it through some real-world testing. Here’s how it stood up.
An aging Mac can be reawakened with an SSD upgrade, becoming more useful with additional storage. The OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD debuted Tuesday, and is available in sizes up to a whopping 4 terabytes.
Apple doesn’t make it easy to upgrade your MacBook. But the Minix Neo Storage Pro does. Clip this to your laptop to add 480GB of storage capacity. Even better, the multiport adapter also includes an HDMI port and a USB-A port for connecting legacy accessories. And there’s a Thunderbolt 3 port, too.
I’ve been testing the Neo Storage Pro for weeks. Here’s how well it works in regular use.
