I write to ask for advice.
I have a Lenovo IdeaPad 5-14ITL05 - Type 82FE and I would like to buy a dock station for it. Here I leave the specifications:
It has 1 usb-c port for charging and transferring data. It also has 2 usb 3.1 ports.
This computer works with Windows.
Also, I have a Lenovo B-590. This computer is a bit old (2014). It does not have a USB-C port, but it has 2 usb 3.0
It also has Ubuntu installed. It only supports one extra monitor.
My goal is to find a dock that allows me to exchange between the 2 computers with only one cable (obviously each laptop has its charging cable but I think the dock station can charge the IdeaPad 5-14ITL05 - Type 82FE, although Lenovo has told me that it is dangerous to put a dock to charge other than the original charger …). The use of both laptops is work and software development. No games, no videos, no graphic design…
I have an HDMI auxiliary monitor but I am thinking of buying a second monitor with DP (and this I would only use for the Windows computer, the new IdeaPad 5-14ITL05 - Type 82FE).
Can you help me find something that works for me?
