Y510P 59405664: Dockingstatin available, even with three monitors?

2014-08-01, 12:29 PM

Hello,

 

I'm about to replace my desktop and notebook systems with the IdeaPad Y510P 59405664 as the two-in-one-solution. So: is there a docking station available for this IdeaPad which is able to handle the following specifications?

 

  • mechanical keyboard via PS/2 (not an absolute must, but would be great)
  • mouse via USB
  • audio via cinch
  • three monitors
  • gigabit ethernet

I hope that this is possible, even with three monitors. In my current desktop PC setup, I use three monitors, too. The reason I think it should be possible is, that this IdeaPad has the internal CPU graphics (HD graphics) which can handle one monitor, and the second dedicated graphics card GT750 which should be able to handle to additional monitors. All monitors are FHD (1920x1080) monitors.

 

If there is no docking station available which can handle three monitors, is there a possibility to work with DisplayPort or something like that? I didn't every worked with DisplayPort, so I don't know what is possible.

 

I appreciate every answer that's helpful to me :-)

Solved! See the solution

I think you have to have a Thinkpad to get a docking station.

I have the lenovo y510p with the i7 duel nvidia 755m sli.

I know that my wireless keyboard and mouse via USB worked, as long as ur keyboard and mouse is supported by windows 8.1 ur sweet.

Audio by cinch I do not know.

Three monitors is a maybe, I run a hannsG 1080p FHD monitor, , the laptop has a HDMI port, and sound can go through this due to the nvidia card.

And ethernet is a yes, use a cat6 cable, I have a 152mb connection and the wireless card can't keep up with it.

You might consider getting mouse and keyboard via Bluetooth.

So there are no classical docking stations available for the IdeaPad series?

Docking stations are one of the defining differences between the ideapad and the thinkpad series.
