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.

  • I bought the original Surface Dock for myself and used it with my own SP5 and Surface Go and my partner now uses it with her Surface Laptop 3. As I'm working from home permanently, my company bought me a SP7 and a Surface Dock 2. The only issues I've ever had were connecting to an older TV using the original Dock but that was addressed with a firmware update some time ago. Other than that, they've worked exactly as expected and are very convenient.
  • The Surface Dock is a good device but : a. It is ludicrously expensive for a mere dock
    b. The product snaps never show that there is also a heavy power brick. Meaning that this is in no way a portable device. So, only a good buy for those with money to burn and who are never going to move it from a desk.
