Docking Station Compatibility

2018-05-18, 22:42 PM

The mobo my T430 died, and I am considering a T450.  My questions are three-fold.

 

First, do they use the same power supply?  I only have about 4 of the T430 ones.....

 

Second, will the T450 fit in the T430 docking station?  Lenovo's docking station compatibility finder doesn't list these any longer.

 

Third, will the T430 hard drive fit in the T450?  I don't believe that it will as they are different interfaces, but I have a lot of data on the HD.  Might have to get one of those Startech external power systems and copy things over.

 

Thanks!

Different power supplies.

T430 HD will not fit in the T450.

 

T450 will not fit in the T430 docking station.

 

So many decisions....
