Thin and light laptops like the Surface Laptop 3 and Dell XPS 13 are great, but their trimmed down bodies don't have all the ports of some beefier laptops. In fact, many of the best Windows laptops lack some ports. Luckily, you can easily add a DisplayPort to your laptop with this AmazonBasics dongle.

DiplayPorts aren't as common these days, but they're still around in some settings. PC monitors often have DisplayPort built-in because it is a good way to connect multiple monitors to a PC. This dongle supports 4K resolution up to 3840 x 2160 and up to 5.4 Gbps data transfer speeds.

Many laptops can actually use DisplayPort through a USB-C cable, but if the monitor you're connecting to has a DisplayPort, this discounted dongle from AmazonBasics makes it easy to connect your computer.
