    I purchased this Acer USB-C dock. It does not provide charge to the computer, data, or display to external monitors. My friend said that sometimes computers and/or docks are locked to only work with their brand. The Acer promises "best compatibility with Acer laptops" but nothing else seems to indicate an issue. Has Microsoft locked the Surface Book to only charge with their dock? Are there any alternative docks that the surface book works with?

    I use a multi monitor setup at both work and home. I am not going to buy a 130 dollar dock twice. That's just insane! Does anyone have any suggestions?
