- How is life with only 1 port?
- What are the restrictions with non-Thunderbolt 3 compatibility? I am presuming today there aren't many devices though this may change. Is the 5Gbps upper limit an issue, or is this just for "pro" use, i.e. multi-5k screens, plus TB3-native SSDs or eGPUs?
- Is there any system performance overhead when devices are attached? i.e. will I lose base CPU cycles as a result?
I foresee 2 main scenarios where I will need or like to use peripherals:
- Remote & presenting - laptop on the road, doing customer sessions or presentations. I need power + HDMI connectivity
- Office dock - power + external monitor (HDMI) + external hard drive
Monitors sound a little more complex, whether it is 1080p, 4k or 5k. Is there a simple explanation? Today, i have 1x 1080p monitor, but I have been looking at the Ultra Wide screens from LG (4k?). Can the TV provide the power to itself and the MacBook? Is it connected via a HDMI port or a USB-C port?
Ideally I would be looking for a USB-C hub with:
- passthrough power
- up to 3x USB-C ports
- up to 2x USB-A ports
- ethernet(?) - more optional and nice to have (in 2018 with WiFi, etc)
