For those who like to use their laptop computer both on the road and at home, it can be a bit of a challenge to transition from one scenario to the other.
Laptops are designed to be portable and used when away from a desktop. However, when you only own a desktop, you’re unable to take your work with you to more easily collaborate with others.
Docking stations for laptop
are meant to bridge the gap between portability and having a stationary place to work and play.
With a docking station, you can get the best of both worlds with a system that allows your laptop to work for both purposes.
What features does a docking station include?
The particular docking station you purchase depends on the type of computer you have, the functions you want to use it for, and whether you want extras included.
The docking station itself is usually pretty small and doesn’t take up much space, which can be great if you don’t have much room on your desk. Some of the most basic docking stations provide a power supply and ports for connecting to other devices.
More advanced docking stations may include space for additional PC monitors, keyboards,
and computer speakers.
It can also have additional USB-C ports
to connect to printers, add external hard drives, and connect microphones and audio.
