In Reply to: RE: 2017 13"MacBook Pro with Touch Bar: what Hub? posted by Frihed89 on July 05, 2017 at 01:41:10
I don't have a recent Mac with USB-C but I would use the adapters below until USB-C docks & hubs have been out for a while. Most of these are still using an older chipset vs the Mac and may not be fully compatible. In the mean time:
The first adapter shown includes HDMI and standard USB. The second one is just USB-C to USB.
There are a few USB-C docks and hubs out there but be careful. I'd probably wait for the next generation. You can Google search on "USB-C Dock for Mac" or "USB-C hub for Mac" and read the user reviews.
If you visit the link below, search on Adapters.

I think that's a wise solution until TB3/USB C hubs get the bugs worked out.
I use the OWC Thunderbolt 2 dock for my 2016 iMac. It has worked great for me. As you mention, Thunderbolt 3 docks are also available. The thing I like about using the Thunderbolt 2 dock I have is that sometimes I unexpectedly need an extra port that I wouldn't ordinarily have, and with the dock, those extra ports are already right there!
There are additional ports around the side and/or in front too
That looks nice. Maybe I'll take Abe's advice for a short-term solution. I am also looking at external USB C SSD hard drives for my Itunes music. I have 4 TB3 ports, so no problem. I'd love to see a USB C CD/DVD reader, as I still buy RedBook CDs.
