    Nope - there isn't a USB C port on the Surface Laptop, let alone Thunderbolt technology. You can a USB Dock or the Surface Dock.

    The Surface Book 2 actually does have USB-C. This website doesn't offer the SB2 as a device option in it's drop down. I have the same questions as NIRVI as I have a TB16 for my XPS 15 and XPS13 via USCB-C. I'd like to use the same dock but haven't been able to get the configuration to work correctly. I'm not clear if it's a driver issue or what...

    True the SB2 does have USB 2 but OP wasn't clear about which device referred to...

    But one thing to remember if the dock in question requires Thunderbolt it will not work with the Surface Book 2.
