Satechi Aluminum Mini Docking Station is all-in-one hub that contains multiple ports for connecting additional PCs and laptops. One of the main reason I say that it is appropriate for the Mac devices because Macs have less connectivity compared to Windows, and the Aluminum Mini Docking Station design is very compact and the silver color is also synced with an iMac.
The Dock station offers 4 x USB 3.0 ports, a gigabit ethernet port, 4K HDMI and DVI video connections, and a 3.5mm port. It can deliver up to 4096 x 2160p Ultra HD resolutions that require a high speed HDMI cable and compatible with Windows 10 / 8.1 / 7 and Mac.
If you want to add lots of connectors for the desktop and turn it into a multi-connected workstation, this could be a nice option that also fits in your budget, all wrapped into a single neat box quite similar size as any simple Android Box. The price of the Satechi Aluminum Mini Docking Station hub is $169.99, but as of now, Amazon gives us up to 12 percent discount, so you can buy it only for $149.99 USD.
