    Hi, is there a solution to connect this monitor (Dell U2415 24") to late Macbook pro 13" (2017)?
    I need to get 60Hz at least AND ability to use monitor's ports to full speed.

    Thanks.

    I will have mine (15", 2017) on Friday, so will be able to answer that. My monitor is similar, Dell U2515H. Got the cable already (USB-C to Display Port at 60Hz.), which is this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06WD66SKK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    For the monitor ports, I'm going to use this hub: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01MTNODWR/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I'll see how it works and let you know.

    Ok, the delivery was late. Instead of Friday, I've got it yesterday.

    I've tested the cable - usb-c to display port - works well, full resolution at 60Hz.

    The dock also works without any problems.

    And the Macbook Pro itself - I love it. Switched from 2011 and it's a huge upgrade. Starting with the performance, disk speed, screen, graphics, finish quality and the Touch Bar. Bit pricey, but after a day with it - it's money well spend for an upgrade, that will last 3-5 years. Recommending.

    Went for 15", 2.8, 512 SSD, 16GB RAM, Radeon Pro 560.

    Thanks! So there is no doubt we have at least one monitor that works with newest mbp 2017 out of the box!

    I guess I go full paranoia, could you please provide the link to your monitor?
