Based on what you're describing, what you're looking for is probably less of a hub and more of a USB-C/Thunderbolt dock.

 


I have this CalDigit USB-C Dock which I use with my Blade 14". The build quality is very nice and sturdy and it tends to work fairly well. Though your mileage may vary.

It doesn't charge the blade 14" though b/c you can't push 165W of power through USB-C, but it should be able to charge the stealth just fine. There are also other USB-C/Thunderbolt docks such as Dell's WD15 Dock and Pluggable's USB-C Dock. Though most USB-C/Thunderbolt docks tend to have a mixed bag of reviews, so make sure to do your research before selecting one.

 

Though as for the "Affordable" part, that depends on what you consider affordable. Most of the docks tend to cost around $150

A hub, which is normally unpowered (No external supply besides the usb connection), would probably have similar ports and be cheaper, but likely would not charge the computer

macbook or macbook pro? Thunderbolt 3 or just USBC?

it should work even on a 2016 macbook (non-pro) but depends on dock and cables

must have HDMI 2.0 Display

must have certified USBC to HDMI 2.0 cable

this is why displayport is better, any DP inputs on that monitor?

this explains it

and also from apple

why not go direct from HDMI on dock? is this ur dock?
