Looking for non-Lenovo Thunderbolt dock for T580

2019-03-07, 13:37 PM

(For those of you who have followed my previous threads, I've now ordered a T580 with 4k display).


I'm looking for a T3 dock which can do the following on a T580. It would allow me to use just one cable to dock/undock it:


1) Attach a screen with a 2560x1440 resolution with 60Hz (digital connection)

2) Attach a screen with a 1920x1200 resolution with 60Hz (digital or VGA connection)

3) Full Ethernet port

4) Charge the laptop (originally, it comes with a 45W power adaptor)

5) Have at least 1 classic USB 3.0 port


Unfortunately my budget is limited so that I can't go for the original Lenovo one.


If there's a dock which can all the above except for attaching two screens, then this would be ok as well, for the time being (assuming I can run one screen via the dock, and the other screen directly from the HDMI of the T580). Then it would just be 2 cables for docking/undocking...
