Don't forget that USB-C needs to supply power to these screens. So, if you
do not have native USB-C with DP + PD (display port + power delivery) on
your laptop - You may need to send power over USB-C separately and video
over HDMI to the display. Unless of course, there is some magic adapter
which can somehow ..... I don't know.

For me, the beauty of this screen is the fact that it is ordinary HDMI and
DP over USB-C screen. And of course - it is portable and flat. It is
definitely not one of these USB based screens which work only in windows
and badly.

It works great for headless servers, raspberry-pi and such. My USB power
bank keeps it running for about day, and ordinary usb 3 A-type powers it
too without issues when accessing bios on headless servers in a closet.

If these things had decent gamut, I'd be framing them and hanging on the
walls instead of pictures. Probably too small for Guernica, but it would
work for the Dutch masters and such.

Best luck,
