You can easily expand the number of connectors on your MacBook with an HDMI adapter. Roughly speaking, two types can be distinguished. You can use a converter in one of your USB-C ports. You'll often find 1 to 4 connectors on them. A docking station is larger and often has 2 USB-C ports. You do get more connectors in return. Which version is best for you depends on how often you're on the go.
