The best dock for MacBook Pro can immediately expand the range of things you can connected to your laptop. Apple laptops come with quite a limited number of ports considering the number of  things most people need to connect, so if you want to connect a lot of peripherals – anything from a mouse to an external monitor, you'll need a decent dock. And you'll ideally want one that can do several things at once and transfer data at the fastest possible speeds.

We've picked tested a wide range of options, and we've used that experience to put together this list of the best docks for MacBook Pro based on our reviews. We selected reliable brands, thoroughly compared the specs available and put the devices through their paces in real-life use cases. We compared build, features, connectivity, performance, aesthetics and cost to pick out the best option for different needs, including the best Thunderbolt 4 docks for recent MacBook Pro as well as Thunderbolt 3 docks or USB-C docks for MacBook for those who have older Macs or don't want to splash out for the fastest speeds.

Microsoft Audio Dock

Microsoft Audio Dock

Part USB hub, part conference speaker, this could be a good option for people who spend much of their day on video calls, although the Microsoft branding and fairly low number of ports may put off some MacBook users. It's a real bargain now, though.
