ThinkPad Advanced Mini-Dock

Hi,

I have a R61 8932CTO, with the integrated Intel X3100 graphics adaptor (as it gives better battery life)

Take a look at this page: Mini-Dock

Does this Mini-Dock work correctly with my Thinkpad?  Specifically, can I use the DVI port for an external monitor?

I'm asking as it appears a bit sensitive to models of Thinkpads and the integrated graphics...

Thank you

yes the mini dock is good for T60 and R60 series, but unfortunately your x3100 will not support DVI output on your mini dock... due to bios restriction.

Thanks for the reply.  Can you say why that is?  The page I referenced indicates that it would work... do you have experience of trying this exact setup?

its actually stated in the sales manual that it do not work with integrated graphics card, and i got one of the dock and it doesn't work with my x3100.... its a bios limitation, as your laptop LCD takes digital signal... and the Macbook with the exact setup have DVI-mini output rather than the normal VGA output with your thinkpad...
