This 4-port USB hub is just $3.50 today, $5 off list

It can charge your laptop, too, via micro-USB.

Everyone needs a USB hub, especially if your laptop is lacking in the ports department. Unitek's portable USB 3.0 4-port high speed hub can help, and today it's just $3.50 using the code WDIE5BZU. That's a sharp discount from its $8 list price.

This compact hub can add up to four peripherals to your setup, using the common USB-A connector. It's fast, with USB 3.0's maximum transfer rate of 5Gbps, and it works with most USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatible devices. 

But wait, there's more! This hub is also able to charge your laptop or other high-power device. It has a micro-USB port, so you can use a micro-USB cable (not included) to plug it into AC. It supports the BC 1.2 charging spec and delivers 5V, 1.2A charging.

The Unitek portable USB 3.0 4-port hub also offers 5V, 1.2A charging for laptops via its micro-USB port. 

While we haven't tried this hub ourselves, it has 4.2 stars out of 5 on Amazon with over 400 user ratings. Users seem to particularly like the long cord and fast USB 3.0 speeds.

What it lacks, of course, are the new USB Type C ports slowly phasing into newer laptops. In addition, you aren't getting USB 3.1's even faster transfer rate of 10Gbps.

Because everyone still has USB Type A-connected products, however, we know USB hubs with Type A ports are going to be around for a while. For this price, it's very little investment for a lot of convenience.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
