I love my new T520! I purchased a docking station that is model 4338 (FRU part 45M2490 and PN 45N5888). The problem I'm having is that the T520 when docked rocks slightly - the front left edge of the laptop is raised up about 1/8 inch so when I type, the laptop moves slightly up and down.
According to the Lenovo web site, the part numbers translate to a 433810U, which should work for a T520. I'm wondering since this dock doesn't show 433810U as the part number that maybe it was manufactured for the T510's and that there may be a slight difference in the T520 causing the laptop not to sit squarely on the desk.
Does anyone have a T520 with the 4338 and have you experienced this problem?
Thanks in advance!

I, too, have seen online (from Lenovo) that it uses the same dock, which I also have the same as you. But as a T520 owner with the same dock, I'm wondering if you can answer a quick question for me: Do you have the discrete (NVidia) graphics option and if so, does the ESATA port on the dock work?!?!? From all I read the T520's without discrete graphics do not come with the ESATA port on the body, yet I'm hoping that I can buy a T520 and use my dock to get the ESATA connectivity without having to get the discrete graphics. Can you help me with any info? Thanks ever so much.
