Pre-Sale Question about Docking Station for a Thinkpad P51

2021-04-05, 13:57 PM

I have a P51 (Type 20HH) and according to this link  The ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock - 170W/230W (40AN)  is compatible with my Laptop. Can anybody confirm this before I can purchase the docking station?

Hello areyesilva,

 


Welcome to Lenovo Community

 

 

ThinkPad USB 3.0 docks are compatible with ThinkPad P51 laptops - Basic, Pro, Ultra versions

https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/options_iso/ocm_january_2018.xlsx

 

TB3 Workstation Dock 3 might work, but full functional may not be met.

Let's hear some inputs from fellow users who might've made this set up work.

 

 

Best regards, 
Lorenzo_Lenovo

Hello,

 

The ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock should work fine with the ThinkPad P51, which does have a Thunderbolt 3 port.  Keep in mind, though, that the ThinkPad P51 will still need to charge via the SlimTip port, as the 100W provided over Thunderbolt 3's USB-PD connection is insufficient to charge the ThinkPad P51 by itself.

 

Regards,

40AN is way cheaper on AMZN than through Lenovo for the same product. But be careful of which MarketPlace seller you purchase from. Some are selling offshore goods.
