ThinkPad Advance Dock for T410+

#1 Post by ThinkPad560X » Sat Oct 13, 2018 10:32 pm

Did Lenovo quit making large docks for ThinkPads T410 and newer? I like the large docks as it gave lots of extra ports plus a extra drive bay and better a PCIe slot. I been looking to get a graphics card for mine as this website shows "Looks like a Russian website" . http://www.retropcmania.com/2012/03/thi ... art-2.html

I had a dock for my T420 and only had this dock and could only find these for the T410 and newer. https://www.google.com/search?biw=1280& ... 9487864699

I seen Lenovo doesn't even offer a dock anymore on way newer ThinkPads and only as a USB plug in dock.

You cannot do this via docks for CS09 Thinkpads. You can connect external GPU via ExpressCard.

Ok thanks. I kind of figured they did quit making them just wasn't sure. And I was going to use a external GPU as I wouldn't trust a graphics card that requires a lot of power.
