Laptop docking stations are designed to fill the gap between the portability of a laptop and the static solidity of a desktop, creating a versatile way to connect peripherals.
Attach multiple devices, keeping cabling to a minimum, and yet hang on to the mobility afforded by a laptop. By providing the option of rounding out the laptop experience with additional features more readily associated with a desktop, a docking station allows a desktop experience without the desktop budget.
What to look for when buying a docking station?
- Operating system – it’s important to check the OS as not all models will be compatible with your OS. Universal docking stations are available that cover most makes
- Connector – ensure that the laptop port you plan to connect the docking station to is compatible
- Ports – decide which ports you are likely to require. Do you want to add a monitor or two, cell phone, or charge another laptop?
- Cables – check that you have all the necessary cables and that they are long enough
