If you look at the snazziest slim laptops of 2020, you’ll notice that they have often one thing in common: a lack of ports. From the MacBook Air to the Surface Pro X, it’s common now for ultraportable work laptops to sport just one or two USB-C ports for everything.
But many of us still have rather more devices to connect, from external webcams for Zoom calls to memory card readers or storage drives.
PNY’s all-in-one USB-C dock is a very useful fix for this. It has a nice cross-selection of ports that include two standard USB-A ports, one USB-C port and one enhanced USB-C (PD charging) port – the type you can charge another large gadget off.
It also gives you HDMI, VGA, RJ45 and memory card (SD and microSD) ports. In other words, it has you covered for a lot. It connects itself to the laptop via its own USB-C connection and is quite lightweight.
