As laptops are getting thinner, we need new solutions for our docking stations. Lenovo came up with the new ThinkPad Ultra Dock or ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station. It connects on the side of the ThinkPad. From the product photo’s it looks like the new ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station offers the same features as the docks we were used to in the past. You can lock it into the ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station, and unlock it again with the key set. Then you press the button on the ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station to unmount.
Supported ThinkPads are:
- ThinkPad L480
- ThinkPad L580
- ThinkPad T480
- ThinkPad T480s
- ThinkPad T580
- ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 6
- ThinkPad X280
You can find the manual to setup the ThinkPad Ultra Docking Station here.
