Lenovo ThinkPad Ultrabase Series 3 - aka X220 Docking Station



Gear: Lenovo ThinkPad UltraBase Series 3.

When I had the Lenovo X201 Tablet I enjoyed the Lenovo X200 Ultrabase a lot. The docking station enables you to easily switch between mobile and desktop experiences. Connecting USB, VGA, ethernet, and many more cables every time gets annoying and the Ultrabase Series 3 solves that problem with the X220 Tablet and Laptops.  There is also the convenience of connecting all the cables to the rear, which helps you from having annoying wires all over the place.


Another advantage of the Ultrabase is that it raises the system and makes your system work very well with the Cooler Master Notepal Ergostand.  A tablet paired with the right accessories can enhance your experience.

Details:
  • Top
    • Battery accomodation space
    • Docking port
    • Drain rail and hole
  • Left
    • Undock button and release latch
  • Front
    • Speaker holes (for the laptop version)
    • Power button
  • Right
    • Drive bay (supports optical drives, or hard drives via adapter)
    • Drive release
    • Lock (keys are included with new systems)
  • Back
    • Lock port
    • 4x USB ports
    • Headphone and Microphone
    • VGA and DisplayPort
    • Ethernet and Power port


Note: According to one of the user guides the X220 LAPTOP is compatible with ThinkPad Port Replicator Series 3, Mini Dock Series 3, and Mini Dock Plus Series 3. The TABLET is not listed as compatible with those docking stations, but the Ultrabase Series 3 is.

  3. Hello Jesse,

    I wonder if it is possible to plug 2 monitors in extended mode + the internal display ( so actually 3 monitors ) in this configuration?
