mini dock or mini dock plus?

2009-07-23, 18:45 PM

I have seen two different docks advertised for the T400s. One is named the mini-dock, series 3. The other, mini-dock plus, series 3. What is the difference between the two? The only thing I can tell is about 50 bucks.

When I looked at the sites the other day I had to ask myself the same question, seemed a bit strange to say the least. What I eventually found out, after further investigation, is that the the mini-dock series 3 has one DVI and one DisplayPort. The mini-dock plus series 3 has two of each.  I think someone forgot to edit after copying and pasting :smileywink:


Only two ports can be used simultaneously.


Hope this helps
