I just purchased a yoga 720-13 for my son who will be heading off to college in the fall. My plan is to set him up with the laptop and monitor via docking station that can also serve to charge the laptop. Researching all the options has left me more confused than ever. Does anyone have any brand recommendations? Compatibility issues? USB vs USB-C? I am new here and not tech savvy so appreciate any help.

The right usb-c port on the left-hand side is thunderbolt 3 and will support a usb-c dock for all outputs as well as charging, as long as the dock supplies 5v, 9v, 15v or 20v power output. The Dell usb-c docks output 19.5v so they will not work (personally tried them). The Lenovo usb-c dock works great, other than the power button on the dock does not turn on the laptop so you will need to open the lid and press the power button on the side.
