What is a Docking Station?

What is a Docking Station?

Imagine a situation wherein, you need to connect the following devices externally to the laptop:

  1. A regular keyboard, if your preference is to towards a separate keypad
  2. A mouse, much comfortable option than the laptop touchpad
  3. An external monitor, if you want a bigger display than your current laptop screen
  4. A printer
  5. An external USB hard drive
  6. Speakers, because external speakers are always better than the one in-built in the laptop

Imagine you have connected all these devices at your home, and now you wish to carry the laptop at work, you again have to go through an entire process with every tedious step:

  1. Disconnect the keyboard
  2. Disconnect the mouse
  3. Disconnect the monitors
  4. Disconnect the printer
  5. Disconnect the external drive
  6. Disconnect the speakers

And again, after the day at work is completed you have to get back home and connect all the devices to the laptop.

This task is indeed repetitive and unnecessary.

To avoid this, one can simply connect a laptop to the docking station and all you have to do is simply connect the external devices to your docking stations and when you need to attach the laptop, you simply have to plug it to the dock to establish the connections. Then instead of having multiple connections, you just have a single one with your laptop. That way when you need to take your laptop elsewhere, you simply have to disconnect it from the docking station and take it away, and same applies for connecting it again to the devices when you wish to switch back.

ALOGIC provides you with one of the best docking stations which you can use along with your laptop for easier management of multiple connections
