Last summer, Matrox unveiled a new line of Thunderbolt docking stations specifically for MacBook users. The docking station line is called the Matrox DS1 and includes two nearly identical products. Matrox has announced that its DS1 products are now available in the United States.

The docking stations are designed to make it easier for MacBook Pro and MacBook Air Users to connect a bunch of peripherals to their computer. The docking stations have connections for either DVI or HDMI displays, full-size keyboard, and a mouse. They also feature gigabit Ethernet ports, a single USB 3.0 port, and a pair of USB 2.0 ports.

The docking stations also have a microphone input and an output for speakers or headphones. The only difference between the two available Matrox DS1 units is that one supports DVI displays any other supports HDMI connections. Both are priced the same at $249(USD) and allow users to connect all of those accessories with a single Thunderbolt cable running between the dock and the notebook. The DS1 line will be available globally in early January 2013.
