New Thinkpad Pro Dock

2013-07-21, 7:55 AM

Hello,

I noticed 2 new thinkpad docks were referenced: Thinkpad Basic Dock and Thinkpad Pro Dock, listed here. There's also new "ultra dock".

They're designed for thinkpad t440s.

But I wonder if they also work with thinkpad t431s?

that would be logical because the old series 3 docks have former AC connector, whereas t431s has the new rectangular one... 

T431s Manual says that series 3 docks work with it though.

40-series system use completely new docks and have different docking connectors.  Physically the docking connector is smaller.

 

30-series system (including T431s) use the series 3 docks.

 

It looks like the website you linked was never updated for T431s but I can assure you that it uses the series 3 dock and not the new basic/pro/ultra docks.  Sorry for this confusion.
