A laptop docking station expands the functionality and feature set of your laptop giving you the capability to hook up to external monitors, connect a wider range of peripherals and charge your laptop at the same time. It removes the hassle of connecting multiple cables and gives you the best of both worlds - the portability of a laptop plus the experience and connectivity of a desktop PC. Ideal for remote or work from home workers, docking stations allow workers to use the same computer in both locations. When working at your office desk you simply connect the laptop to the dock (usually via a single cable) and you get instant access to your monitors, network, printers and other devices. And when it’s time to hit the road again you simply unplug the laptop from the dock and use it like a normal laptop again.
