Here's the Tiny USB-C Card Reader Your 12-Inch MacBook Desperately Needs

By Andrew Liszewski on at

One of the less publicised themes of CES 2016 appears to be ‘ways to fix the 12-inch MacBook’. Not only the laptop come with just a single USB-C port, there’s also no memory card slot. So if you’re a photographer constantly transferring shots, you’ll want Satechi’s tiny new USB-C card reader always close at hand.

Here's the Tiny USB-C Card Reader Your 12-Inch MacBook Desperately Needs

Available in silver, space grey, and gold finishes to match your 12-inch MacBook, Satechi’s $20 (around £14, exact UK pricing TBC) Type-C Card Reader will be available sometime this month, and allows any device with a USB-C port—be it a 12-inch MacBook, Chromebook Pixel, or tablet—to access both its SD and microSD card slots at the same time.

It’s cheap and simple, and exactly what it needs to be until Apple finds a way to squeeze an SD card slot into future versions of the 12-inch MacBook. [Satechi]
