Docking Stations for X1 Carbon

2017-12-11, 13:29 PM

I have an X1 Carbon gen. 5. which supports Thunderbolt 3. I would like to purchase a Thunderbolt 3 docking station, but I also need the docking station to be compatible with older laptops that only have USB 3 support. Is it possible to use the Thunderbolt 3 docking station with older laptops also?

 

best regards

Lars Kohsel

Hi Lars,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

 

I doubt as in order to use Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Dock there has to be Thunderbolt present in your older systems. It doesn't work with USB 3.0 ports.

  

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh
