Connecting your Surface
As laptops have evolved into thinner and lighter machines, people have had to grab a growing list of dongles and adapters to connect to accessories. Even the best laptops can benefit from some extra ports. The Surface Laptop Go has a USB-C port, USB-A port, and a Surface Connect port, but you may want to add even more ports. The Surface Dock 2 is an excellent tool to expand the capabilities of your Surface Laptop Go.
The Surface Dock 2 has a long list of ports. You can connect all of your accessories, monitors, and other devices to the Surface Dock 2 once and then just connect and disconnect your Surface Laptop Go with a single cable through the Surface Connect Port. Here are the ports on the Surface Dock 2:
- 2x front-facing USB-C ports.
- 2x rear-facing, video-enabled USB-C ports
- 2x rear-facing USB-A 3.2 (10Gbps) ports
- 1x Gigabit Ethernet port
- 1x 3.5mm audio in/out port
- Kensington compatible lock
The Surface Dock 2 doesn't work with older Surface devices, but it does work with the Surface Laptop Go. The Surface Dock 2 works with any Surface device made in 2017 or later.
