    First don't Buy Razer stupid overprieced chinese piece of shit. 2nd make an inexpensive laptop dock setup and not a more expensive one than buying a full gaming rig. Ok you should rename as Linus Shit Tips. I use a fucking kitchen shelf and serving cabinet on the side with a laptop stand on the top and fans under.

    so all he did was just hook up a thunderbolt 3 cable to a thunderbolt 3 hub and attached a external graphics card? What is the point of this setup if i can just plug my peripherals to my laptop and then like a hdmi cable to my monitor? Please help.

    I dont understand the point of this video. Literally no one is going to jump through all the hoops to create a desk setup like this. Should've just showed that the thunderbolt port can connect your laptop and external graphics card to a monitor.

    I assume your monitor is connected directly to the egpu then? Would there be any latencies if the monitor stayed connected to the dock? Then there would be only one cable to the egpu. I have Mac and Intel NUC Hades Canyon and I would like to switch between them with just one cable (hence the question would I benefit if I connected monitor directly to NUC or it's ok if the monitor is connected through dock?) Also if I added egpu to the chain I could just connect to it with one thunderbolt from the dock or leave it out completely when I don't need it and connect that thunderbolt cable directly to one of my computers.
