StarTech.com DK31C3MNCR is a premium USB-C Docking Station for Chromebooks

A Chromebook is a laptop running Google's Linux-based ChromeOS operating system. However, when you connect such a notebook to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse, it becomes a makeshift desktop computer.

The most elegant way to transform a laptop into a desktop is with a USB-C docking station. But how can you be sure your Chromebook is compatible? Well, if the dock is officially certified as "Works With Chromebook," then you can be assured that it will work flawlessly.

Popular dock-maker StarTech.com has a new such product that it is notable for being "Works With Chromebook" certified and VESA-mountable. Called "DK31C3MNCR," this premium dock offers 60 watts of USB-C power delivery, so it can charge your Chromebook while simultaneously providing several useful ports.
