Hey guys,

I've been searching rather unsuccessfully for a dongle what has both USB-A and HDMI that will connect to my 2018 MacBook Pro.

I need to plug an external monitor but I don't want to get a normal dongle, rather one of those that plug into the two side USB-C and have multiple connections.

Do any of them come with HDMI or am I never going to find one? Is there an alternative recommendation? Searching 'dongle' or 'hub' on this forum returns far too many results to go looking through.

Thanks.

I was kinda hoping there would be something that wasn't detached from the body and more stuck alongside it.
From what I've read of people's experiences, meaning I don't have direct experience, having a short cable is better. Any moving of the Macbook doesn't stress the USBC connector as much with the cabled hubs as it would with an up-against-the-case style.
