Docking Station - Compatible with Thinkpad X230 Tablet?

#1 Post by jon617 » Wed Jan 09, 2019 5:44 pm

I have a Thinkpad X230 Tablet (aka "X230t") and looking for a compatible docking station that has DisplayPort video output?

Many docking stations that come up when searching for X230 say they are NOT compatible with the X230 Tablet. Has anyone found a good docking station compatible with the X230t that has DisplayPort output?

The Mini Dock Series 3 is not supposed to be compatible, but you can make it compatible. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Mine works fine. Searched X230 ultrabase dock on Ebay I paid $26 for the dock w/dvd drive, then paid $90 for a compatible lenovo bluray drive
