    So close to perfection.... If only it would also charge the laptop, then it would be flawless. Still find it ridiculous that HP doesn't offer any T3 docks for my spectre x360 13" (current gen)

    Nice - Elgato docks are great - we used to deploy them at my old job (the TB 2 ones) maybe a few had issues the entire time I worked there - out of a 2,000 + workforce & who can say if that was the dock or the employee damaging it or not. If they are as great as the last gen people will have nothing to worry about...

    Huh, call me old fashioned but I'm still of the opinion that all of these things should be included in a laptop as standard

    I saw availability and warranty but nothing on pricing.

    That really isn't an excuse for the manufacturers, I've seen a couple of designs for expandable ethernet ports. Regardless for any future purchases, as full a complement of I.O. as possible will be must have and ultralights will be avoided like the plague.

    A couple of months ago I was making a presentation for work. The projector on the site only had a vga or s-video inputs and a broken dongle. Fortunately my battered old vaio had both ports.
    Now I have to deal with legacy hardware more than most people but I still think the current dongle trend is stupid. Don't get me wrong I'd love it if a single port like TB or Usb-c was capable of doing everything but it's not and it's only a matter of time before some smartass makes something better and we're back to square 1
