I’m trying to set up a home-office with 2 external monitors (Dell U2417H), and I’m looking for a Plugable laptop dock that will hopefully work for my situation.
I have 2 different laptops that I need to switch out every now and then - one is a Dell XPS 13 (which looks to be fully supported by the Plugable USB-C dock), and the other is a Lenovo T450s.
I know the XPS 13 has a Thunderbolt / USB-C port so it’s not an issue at all. However, the Lenovo T450s only has a USB 3.0 or a Mini DisplayPort. If I do get the Plugable USB-C dock, will I be able to run a USB-C to USB 3.0 adaptor in order to get it to work with my Lenovo T450s as well? Granted, I know it won’t have the extra USB-C functionality like charging, etc., but I just want to make sure that the setup will at least allow my Lenovo T450s to output the display onto the 2 monitors I have connected to the dock when I’m connected to it via USB 3.0.
Appreciate any input or advice on this issue, tips on how I can make my setup work, or even what adaptor I should buy to convert the USB-C to USB 3.0 for my Lenovo. Thanks!
