Yes Arc Hub is compatible with all Windows 10 OS laptops. Older versions of Windows is not supported.
Mac Laptops: Dual displays is supported but be both will displaying the same extended screen (In total you will have two unique desktops rather than three). This is due to a “one video output per port” restriction Apple has placed on it’s Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports. Unfortunately, until Apple updates the laptop’s firmware, there is no workaround for this.
Pass through charging is currently not supported on Dell Xps 13 & 15, Lenovo Yoga 900 & 910, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S. In most cases it’s due to a missing protocol that we do not have access to. We are currently looking for a solution and are in contact with the brands listed above.
