The best Thunderbolt docks for your laptop

Simply put, laptops are slimming down. And in the quest for a "cleaner" look, many laptop makers are forgoing the legacy ports (particularly in the premium models), leaving those duties to external devices.

The biggest difference between Thunderbolt docks and USB-C hubs are price and bandwidth. USB-C hubs or dongles are far cheaper, but they offer far less bandwidth. That primarily matters where display connectivity is concerned, but can also affect the number and type of external hard drives, SSDs, and other peripherals that your PC can connect to. While a USB-C hub can support a single 4K display, often at an eye-wearying 30Hz refresh rate, Thunderbolt docks can support up to two 4K displays at a comfortable 60Hz. You can also use Thunderbolt 3 to enable an external GPU for your PC. (There's nothing stopping you from using a USB-C hub with a Thunderbolt dock, either.)

If your laptop includes a Thunderbolt port, chances are it supports the Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 standard, both of which provide 40Gbps.

DOJ reverses itself, says good-faith security researchers should be left alone
In a move that could have a major impact on enterprise penetration testing and other cybersecurity tactics, the US Department of Justice last Thursday reversed one of its own policies by telling prosecutors not to prosecute anyone involved in "good-faith security research."

This is one of those common-sense decisions that makes me far more interested in exploring the original DOJ policy (set in 2014, during the Obama era). 

The underlying law at issue is the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which made it illegal to access a computer without proper authorization. It was passed in 1986 and has been updated several times since then.

This everyday Asus laptop with a beautiful 1080p display is just $370

First up, let's talk about that display. It's 17.3 inches with 1080p resolution, so no worries there. For a laptop this size, no matter how cheap, you don't want anything under 1080p.

As for the processor, Asus went with an Intel "Tiger Lake" Core i3-11800H. This CPU has just two cores and four threads. That's not much in this day and age, but it's enough to run Windows. The OS, by the way, is Windows 10 Home and it's Windows 11 ready.

To help keep things snappy, this laptop is packing 8GB of RAM. That's perfect for productivity tasks and will make a noticeable difference. For onboard storage, you get 512GB-a good amount at this price range where 256GB has become the norm.

As a day-to-day computer for travel or for working with cloud documents, this should be a good option.

[Today's deal: Asus VivoBook K712EA for $370 at Staples.]
