Yes it has enough ports. But I don't want to keep disconnecting the HDMI cable etc every time I want to swap between my office laptop and personal one at my desk. I was considering the hybrid usb c usb a docking station from Lenovo but they clearly state the usb a doesn't work for HDMI output. So I'm looking at alternatives now. Another alternative I am thinking about is using a KVM switch with one input connected to the Lenovo Z580 and the other input connected to a USB C hub permanently. When I need to connect my office laptop I use the USB C input. I think this is feasible and not too difficult. But it does mean that I purchase an additional piece of equipment and more wires.
Hi All, I have a quick question on a laptop modification I am working on. Is it possible to use a mPCIe to USB C card in my laptop and use the USB C connection to connect to a docking station with display and peripherals. The card is question would be something like this. https://www.sybausa.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=65_198&product_id=900 A quick background. I am new to building or modding PCs and I am working up my courage by modfying an old laptop I own a Lenovo Z580. The intention is to convert it to a full time desktop and have a docking station that can swap between this and another laptop as required. Thanks in advance for your help!
