Best docks for the Surface Laptop Studio: Surface Dock, Belkin, and more
The Surface Laptop Studio is one of the most exciting devices Microsoft has introduced recently. In some ways, it can be seen as a successor to the Surface Book line, but it’s really meant to bring together the Surface Laptop and Studio lines. It has an all-new design that’s largely inspired by the Surface Studio, it’s the most powerful Surface laptop ever, and it runs Windows 11 out of the box. All of that makes it a great machine to power your office setup, and to help you with that, we’ve rounded up some of the best docks you can buy for the Surface Laptop Studio.
Typically, Surface devices haven’t given you a lot of options for docking. You either use the Surface Connect port or standard USB Type-C. Thunderbolt docks work, but you wouldn’t be able to make full use of their bandwidth with Surface devices. That’s changed now though, and you can finally use Thunderbolt docks with the Surface Laptop Studio. As such, we have some of them on this list too.
- If you'd rather use USB Type-C, Microsoft's official USB-C Travel Hub lets you plug in more USB devices, Ethernet, and external displays more easily. As the name implies, it can fit easily in any bag so you can connect anywhere you go. It even supports VGA in case you come across an old monitor.
- Even wihtout Thunderbolt, this Plugable dock offers an incredible amount of expansion, with six USB ports, HDMI, DVI, and Ethernet connections. You can connect a lot of peripherals this way, and it's more affordable than a Thunderbolt dock too.
Those are some of the best options you can find right now if you want to increase the number of ports on your Surface Laptop Studio. Whether you want something compact to take with you on the road or a powerful dock for your desk setup, there’s something for everyone here.
