Your all-in-one PC has a good selection of ports, but if you need any more, there are docking stations and hubs you can check out.
One of the huge improvements on the Surface Studio 2 Plus over last year’s Surface Studio 2 involves connectivity. It got a more modern upgrade and now features Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-A 3.1 ports, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a Gigabit Ethernet port.
Compared to some of the best Surface PCs, this is a great port selection, which makes sense since this is a $4,000 all-in-one PC. But if you want more ports, you can add additional connectivity with a dock to get SD card slots or HDMI ports for daisy chaining to more monitors. We’ve collected some of our favorites for you right here.
