I bought a laptop thinking the USB Type C port could be used to connect a monitor and I was told by the Asus tech support that it does not, in case you're curious about the laptop in question its an Asus VivoBook Pro 17 N705UQ

I know my only other option is to get an external graphics adapter so I can have 3 monitors.

I'm curious to know if anyone has any recommendations as to what I should get that'll work with Ubuntu.

I'm not really looking for a docking station as I just need the HDMI connector, I have everything else at my disposal.
