    I'd appreciate suggestions for a dock for a rMBP13 2015 that can

    * power and charge the Macbook
    * drive a 4k at 60hz monitor
    * wired Ethernbet
    * usb-a connections - occssional sdcard reader, graphics tablet, CDROM, maybe keyboard and mouse

    Put thunderbolt dock into....

    ....Amazon.

    You'll need a thunderbolt 2 one for 4K at 60hz.

    Something like this maybe??

    Thanks. So whatever dock I get it must carry thunderbolt 2 and not HDMI?
    What if it says display port? Is there a minimum version eg 1.2?

    DP 1.2a is needed


    Although I have seen very few of these around and it's usually thunderbolt 2 using DP1.2a protocol.

    HDMI is still only doing 30ghz until HDMI 2.0 is released. If you can find one with that then all good.

    I'm currently using a henge dock for my 2015 13"

    The sd card slot is on the top now making it very easy to access.

    Works perfectly.

    You would need a thunderbolt to ethernet adapter for wired network.
    I use the apple MD463LL
