Is the Series 3 dock compatible with the T470?

#1 Post by dboling » Wed Oct 18, 2017 9:16 am

After years with my T420, I've just ordered a T470p. I've used the Series 3 dock for the T420. Is it compatible with the new T470p? I know there is a new series of docks for the T series but the specs look very similar. I'd rather not have to buy a new dock if it's not necessary. Anyone know? Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply. Guess I'll be springing for that new dock.
