Excellent advice about the 3-pack to handle my regular peripherals. Now to
figure out how to get an adapter from USB-C (thunderbolt 3) to a plug for my
30" Dell U3011 monitor, at max. resolution (2560x1600).
After 40+ minutes of waiting/being transferred at Dell Support, I did find
someone who said that this adapter would work, but he didn't seem
knowledgeable enough to give me great confidence in the answer.
So maybe USB-C to HDMI would be the answer, but all I find by googling are
"HDMI 4K" adapters. But then I find articles that say that there's no
difference in terms of which cable you need. So are the two HDMI connectors
the same, and the only difference is speed/throughput (similar to how
different USB ports are physically the same, but older/slower ports can't
support newer devices)?
<rhetorical question>And why, why, is it so hard to figure out how to
connect a laptop and peripherals?!<\rhetorical question>
