If a computer feeds video and receives power by a USB-C will this computer dock with a USB-C dock no matter who manufactures it? My school has just replaced their staff computers with Dell computers using a single long USB-C cable from a dock. I do not want to buy a Dell computer. If I use one of my existing computers or the loaner computer at school I have to remove the VGA/Audio or HDMI cable and USB cable from the dock and I really don’t want to do this.
Hi Alan, isn’t there a separate power connection for the Dell computers? I thought my new Dell laptop could be powered through the USB-C port, but it wouldn’t power it or charge the battery. The USB-C only passes 5VDC, but the laptop requires 19.5VDC. I believe the USB-C port is just for passing audio, video, and data through. I need to do a little more research on that myself.
