Planning to get the Del P2417H, specs as below. http://www.dell.com/ed/business/p/dell-p2417h-monitor/pd Brand Dell Item Height 49.2 Centimeters Item Width 18 Centimeters Screen Size 23.8 Inches Maximum Display Resolution 1920x1080 Item Weight 5.17 Kg Product Dimensions 55 x 18 x 49.2 cm Item model number P2417H Hardware Platform PC Included Components Monitor with Stand, Power Cable, 1 x DP Cable, 1 x VGA Cable, 1 x USB 3.0 Upstream Cable (enables the USB port on the monitor), Drivers and Documentation Media, Quick Setup Guide, Safety Information Planning to use the Hootoo hub to connect the monitor to my MB 12. https://www.hootoo.com/ht-uc001-usb-type-c-hub-hdmi-4k-adapter-apple.html Will this effectively be the same as connecting with a USB c cable to a USB c monitor? That is, will it power my laptop, as well as carry data to the hub, and the monitor if I connect one usb of the hub to the upstream USB hub on the monitor? USB c monitors not available where I live, or at least not at less than almost double the US pricing. This will be mainly for accounts, spreadsheet etc, so I am presuming a higher resolution might not benefit me? I have no clue. Are higher res monitors mainly for media consumption, or is the increased real estate space also useful? The text would become very small right?
