    Hi gurus,

    As per title, I've got a June 2012 13" MBP that I use at home connected to a TB display.

    I'm thinking of getting a Henge Dock, but I can't for the life of me find/work out if I can use it with my TB display.

    Essentially, I just want to be able to come home, drop my MBP into the dock and carry on.

    Possible?

    Cheers all.

    You can, but in the new era or Thunderbolt connectivity I don't see the point really.

    You can plug all your peripherals into the back of the ATD and then all you have to do is attach the TB & power cables from the back of the ATD into the MBP as you place it in your Book Arc. It's wildly easy and seems easier to me than sliding the laptop in (and especially out of) the Henge dock. Plus you'll continue to have access to the SDXC card slot and you don't have to buy a new dock if you upgrade or want to use multiple computers with the display.

    Just some food for thought.
