Like the look of Apple's new MacBook Air, but don't think that you could survive with only two Thunderbolt ports and a headphone jack? Fear not, because OWC has a dock that will allow you to have all the ports you could ever need.

2018 Mac mini RAM upgrade: step by messy, fiddly step Here's the verdict: yes, it's doable. But it's not easy and it's not for the faint of heart. In this video, David Gewirtz cracks open his brand new 2018 Mac mini and upgrades from 8GB to 32GB of RAM. It worked!

Are you running short of ports, or have you bought a new system such as the MacBook Air that's a bit anemic when it comes to ports? OWC has the tool for you in the form of their new Thunderbolt 3 dock.

The dock will work with any Windows or macOS system that has a free Thunderbolt 3 port.

I've used several OWC Thunderbolt docks over the years and found them to be a great way to add much-needed ports to a system that might otherwise need dongles (or require you to throw out your old hardware and upgrade to USB-C/Thunderbolt).

The dock is available from OWC via MacSales for $299.99, and comes in a choice of Space Gray and Silver finishes.
