Can the T250410U port replicator be used on a T430?

Question

I am interested in continuing to use the keyboard, mouse, speakers and monitor from an older laptop's setup (USB and VGA) with some sort of docking station/port replicator.

 

Some of the docks are super expensive (to me, anyway).  I was wondering if anyone has any experience using the T250410U port replicator with a T430.  

Answer

The 2504 dock won't work because the T430 uses a different physical connector on the bottom of the case.

 

For users who can make do without USB3.0, a Lenovo USB 2.0 Port Replicator with Digital Video could be considered

 

You might also be able to find a used dock for the T430 on third party sites like eBay.
