    Toward the bottom of this very Apple-esque product announcement is a "Universal Dock" with USB-C charging, USB 3.0 (2), HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, and SD card reader.

    https://www.asus.com/Notebooks/ASUS-ZenBook-3-UX390UA/

    Assuming this is sold separately, and uses "standard" drivers for Ethernet, it might be the "perfect" dock MacBook owners have been looking for.

    VGA? Seriously? Could they not squeeze a parallel or SCSI port in there with it?

    This is, to me, the most egregious flaw in the MacBook design - the single port. You spend a hundred bucks for a hub and it doesn't even have DisplayPort. No thanks.

    I just got the ASUS Universal Dock.
    The HDMI-Port doesn't work reliably with the new Late 2016 MacBook Pros. Rarely it works for a while, but most of the time, there's no picture or sound. It registers as a DisplayPort-Connection on the Mac though. I can't narrow the problem down.

    USB, LAN, VGA and Power Delivery to the MacBook work, though.
