Experience True Mobility with a Docking Station for Your Laptop

Experience True Mobility with a Docking Station for Your Laptop Blog Header Image

<span style="font-weight: 400;">For most people, laptops are an extremely convenient device that allows them to do their work from wherever they wish. Whether it’s at their desk, in a conference room, at a shared table, or in a hotel, one of the biggest benefits of a laptop is mobility.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">However, for many people who need their laptops for work across multiple environments, these computers don’t always seem especially mobile. In fact, sometimes, it can be especially inconvenient simply moving a laptop into the nearest conference room for a presentation, much less taking it on the road to a completely different office.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Fortunately, instead of constantly struggling to adapt your laptop to each new environment, utilizing a mobile docking station could make your life </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">much</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> easier.</span>

<h2><b>Greater Functionality Is Available Through a Mobile Docking Station </b></h2>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">No matter what kind of laptop you rely on, the modern working environment is going to put it through its paces.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">For example, you may be one of the many employees who needs more ports than their laptop can offer when away from your desk. Your job may require you to connect to a projector, monitor, or TV. You may need to plug directly into an RJ-45 LAN connection instead of WiFi. The list goes on and on.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Because laptops are getting thinner, many of these devices aren’t even compatible without the use of adapters. It could be completely impossible to run a presentation on a flat-panel monitor in your conference room with the laptop you currently use. </span>

Instead of finding an inconvenient, disorganized workaround, you’ll find a mobile docking station is much easier for achieving the desired result.

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Of course, many people have more mundane requirements just at their desks. Every single day, they need to connect their laptop to a mouse, keyboard, thumb drive, external monitor(s), and perhaps other essential devices, as well. </span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">This can easily overwhelm the number of USB ports most laptops offer, which is usually just two.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">It doesn’t have to be this way, though. With a mobile docking station, you just plug your laptop into it with a single cable to experience </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">all</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> this functionality. At the end of the day, if you want to take your laptop home for more work, you have one </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">single</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> cable to unplug. That’s it. </span>

<h2><b>Save Money You Would Have Otherwise Spent on a Desktop with a Mobile Docking Station</b></h2>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Due to the limited functionality of many laptops that we just covered, many IT managers assume that the only solution for their staff is to purchase desktops for everyone.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Although that may solve the problem (while greatly limiting worker mobility at the same time), it definitely wouldn’t be a very affordable solution. Imagine replacing every laptop in your office with a brand-new desktop.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Again, this is where mobile docking stations are so helpful. </span><a href="https://www.pcworld.com/article/2886687/the-easy-answer-to-the-laptop-vs-desktop-question-use-a-docking-station.html"><span style="font-weight: 400;">They give laptops the same degree of functionality</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> as desktops in terms of the other devices with which they can connect, </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">but</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> they are only about a fraction of the price.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;"> Your workers will still benefit from the mobility of their laptops, as well, which is a big plus for any employee who needs to regularly work away from their desks. </span>

<h2><b>Improve Shared Working Environments </b></h2>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">There are all kinds of </span><a href="https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/287882"><span style="font-weight: 400;">reasons shared working environments are advantageous</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">. </span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Unfortunately, these environments can also pose constant challenges to laptop users. They may need to jump through a few hoops everyday to get the functionality they require from their devices just to do their jobs. This takes time, wastes money, and can quickly lead to workers who are no longer so thrilled about the potential of this type of working situation. </span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">The good news is that the right mobile docking station </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">completely </span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;">solves the biggest drawback to a shared working environment. Suddenly, people can unplug and plug as they please. Most importantly, they can make the best possible use of their time.</span>
