My work laptop came up on the schedule for replacement, so I figured I may as well get it done. The new laptop arrived this afternoon and I managed to get everything installed, moved over from the old machine, and ready to go. It was a triumph, I say, a triumph!
Until I hooked it up to the dock and to the monitors on my desk.
It turns out that the USB-C dock that they shipped me can't support 1920x1200 monitors. Many docks will, but not this one.
I have sent off an email asking nicely for a different dock.
We'll see how this goes.
