Wonderful stuff!

I mainly ask due to this page which states

We do not recommend using the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter on a PC Desktop / Laptop as it may not work.

In our tests using a Gigabyte Motherboard with USB-C, the Apple Adapter worked. However using a late model Dell XPS 13 laptop, the Apple adapter did not work. In both cases, the StarTech Adapter worked.
The StarTech adapter costs about $140 AUD while the Apple adapter cost me $69 AUD which I already thought was too expensive

I suppose they do answer the question there though, as I'm using a Gigabyte motherboard on a desktop PC.
