Docking stations -- P51 and P51s interchangeability...does it work?

2018-07-30, 15:37 PM

Hello!

 

I have a lenovo thinkpad P51, and I'm looking to purchase a docking station for it so that I can hook it up for a better workstation experience.

 

I see many workstations advertised as functioning with P51S, but they do not mention specifically if P51 is also supported. This seems to limit my options quite a bit if I am looking to go first party for this purchase.

 

Could someone inform me if the two models are interchangeable when speaking about docking stations? I would appreciate it very much and it would help me avoid buying an unnecessary and mismatched docking station.

 

Examples:

Thank you!

Hello and welcome,

 

I don't have personal experience with that laptop or compatible docks, but it looks like the ones you've linked don't provide enough power for the P51 - which comes with a 170W Adapter.  A compatible dock would need that and more.

 

This link should help your search.  Check me on this but it looks like the 230W workstation dock is compabile.
