Targus Laptop Docking Station With Video

If you haven’t accepted the fact that laptops come with certain limitations compared to a full-sized desktop PC, then be prepared to carry a bag full of accessories and add-ons wherever you go. Or, you could spend a bit of money and just grab this new docking station from Targus which isn’t terribly large, but is packed full of useful features.

It connects to your laptop via a single USB port, but expands that to an additional 4 ports with 2 being ‘always on’ even when the laptop is shut down. Of course that means the dock needs its own power supply, but if you’ve picked one up then portability clearly isn’t your priority. The dock also provides a DVI connection using DisplayLink’s technology and can support monitor resolutions up to 2048×1152 as well as additional audio connections and an ethernet port. And finally, you can stash the thing underneath your laptop making it function as a riser to improve airflow and cooling, but obviously it’s the previously mentioned features that will justify its $159.99 price tag.

    Well if you consider the money one would invest in the accessories on their own, and with the chance of losing them because there are so many. The price is about the same. Larger yes, but it seems like it would take up less space then all of the pieces individually.

    One of the many things that I like with my laptop, is that I can carry it everywhere. We all know it gots its limitation, but right now I can go without that limitations, as long as I can do my work whenever I am. Those you mention, were just acessories, that is also helpful, one way or another. dual ab wheel

    If I'm going to buy a docking station it had better have a dock for my spacecraft.
