Dock for P52 & P15s

2021-07-20, 7:59 AM

My personal laptop is a P52, I will soon have a work laptop that will be a P15s.

I am having difficulty finding an appropriate dock to suit both systems.  My aim is to be able to swap out one for the other on the same dock with a minimum of cables at day end/begin.

 

All available options are either not quite clear on cross compatibility between the P52/P15s or require both a cable for the dock and another for the power (the P52 is 170W, I'm not sure for the P15s).

 

Peripherals will be USB, Ethernet and a single HDMI.

  • Is there a single cable or single dock solution that exists?
  • If not, what is the suggested dock for cross-compatibility between the P52/P15s?

Hello,

 

A Lenovo ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Dock will have both SlimTip and USB-C cables for power and data, respectively.

Thank you,

Yes, I'm starting to understand that Lenovo seems to be moving away from actual docks (my preferred option) to this kind of multi cable arrangement (which while called a "dock" is more akin to a "hub").

With this I go from :

  • Power
  • Ethernet
  • Screen
  • USB Hub

To:

  • Power
  • Dock

This is of course an improvement and I will probably go with that if no actual docks exist.

To conclude my question though, are there any actual "docks" that provide the required power that are compatible with both models or are these hubs / pseudo-docks the only option available today?
