The new Chromebook and MacBook both have one thing in common. USB type C. This little "god" port can handle power, video, and data all at once. All that as well as being reversible, you can see why people are saying this is a death knell to Thunderbolt. While I wouldn't go that far, it is both a handy, and frustrating port.

If you are one to use the latest and greatest, you may be looking for a way to expand the IO on your new lap based friend. Anker is known for its cables and this is right in their wheel house.
