Laptop Docking Station Benefits
Lenovo has been in the docking station game for decades. And for good reason. The modern workforce moves around a good bit more during the day than they did in years past. Whether you’re hopping over to the coffee station for a quick pick me up but can’t afford to stay out of touch, or jetting from your desk to your next meeting (and there and back again several times throughout the day), you’ll want to avoid the hassle of disconnecting from and reconnecting to all of your desktop peripherals.
Those times going to and from your desk can add up, and that’s where the benefit of a quality laptop docking station can really shine through.
Our ThinkPad-branded laptops and laptop docking stations stand out from the crowd in that with a single click of compatible models, you can immediately be disconnected or reconnected to your mouse, keyboard, dual display monitors, headphones or other audio video devices, and more.
That’s a lot of plugging and unplugging time you can save.
But what if you’re using a laptop device other than a ThinkPad? Well first, we’d be remiss not to mention all the benefits a ThinkPad laptop can bring to you and your day-to-day productivity, so if you’re interested in learning more about the benefits our array of popular ThinkPad laptop lineups can offer, you can read more and compare.
But as for docks, don’t worry as we have essentially every model of laptop covered with our available universal docking solutions.
Some of our latest and greatest universal models include our own Lenovo USB C mini dock models that connect via cable rather than the snap-in connectivity featured on more stationary, or mechanical, ThinkPad docks.
But additionally we offer popular choices from other top brands like the...
C2G USB C Docking Station
VisionTek Docking Station
IOGEAR Docking Station
SeaGate FireCuda Gaming Dock
Know that not every laptop docking solution is built the same, or has the same set of features and available ports, so as you shop, make sure you’re checking the details to ensure all your needs are covered. However, most docks will include a built-in wireless charger to provide an extended number of ports to keep your desktop and/or mobile devices charged, and of course included in many of the same docks will be power delivery to charge your laptop as it's connected to your dock as well.
Some docks offer high-speed USB C ports that handle the connectivity from your dock to your laptop. These models will also work as a Chromebook docking station as well, so if you’re a Chromebook user, check out our special Chromebook/dock bundles.
Other docks may be dedicated to Apple or workstation users like many of our Mac mini dock solutions or the ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock – both offer Thunderbolt 3 ports to create the single cable connection from your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or ThinkPad mobile workstation to your dock.
If your workload needs include high res work or viewing at 4K resolutions (meaning you regularly work with an external 4K display) you’ll want to make sure your dock of choice supports 4K so that you don’t experience any loss of resolution or refresh rate between your laptop device, dock, and monitor.
Do you commonly use external or mobile storage devices? Many docking stations include slots for card readers so that you can plug in and access your mobile data with ease.
Lastly, most docks will include an array of additional USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports for all manner of expanded plug-and-play potential, helping to free up those already-loaded ports on your laptop, or just providing additional connectivity as-needed.
