Docking stations offer best of both worlds
For any owner of a laptop computer, being able to take the device on the go is its greatest advantage over a desktop computer. But purchasing a laptop docking station provides the best of both worlds.
A docking station offers the ability to use a laptop as a desktop by simply connecting the devices. This is not only beneficial, but convenient. Rather than spending for both a laptop and desktop, a docking station saves money if a laptop is the primary device.
Those who are constantly on the move or using their laptop to access work can be confident in a dock once they get back home. At times, simply sitting down at a desk with a large screen and mouse is easier than trying to maneuver with a laptop. All of the options a typical desktop offers are available with a dock, including USB ports for connecting printers, speakers and CD/DVD drives.
While not for everyone, docking stations provide greater flexibility and extend the use of a laptop far beyond being a portable machine.
