Thinkpad T460 - Hooking up external devices

I have an external keyboard, extenal LCD monitor, and a mouse (all HP products) that I'd like to use with my Lenovo ThinkPad T460.  Can anyone give me some guidance on what product I need to purchase to make this work?


Thanks in advance

Re: Thinkpad T460 - Hooking up external devices

Hi, welcome to the forum.


Your USB devices like Mouse and Keyboard should work on your Thinkpad T460 without any issue. Also the external monitor, but according to what kind of plug does it has (HDMI or DP) you may need some adapter.

So I don't see any major problem conecting those devices to the Thinkpad T460.


You can optionally use an USB Dock to have more order on the cables and if you will like to unplug all the devices fast to take out your laptop. there are docks like:

- ThinkPad USB 3.0 Basic Dock

- Thinkpad USB 3.0 Pro Dock

- Thinkpad USB 3.0 Untra Dock
