Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2015-03-31 read/post comments(0)

With laptops and Windows tablets, we are able to have up to four displays on at the same time (the internal display, the second display via the tablet/laptop HDMI output, third and fourth display thanks to the dock), but also plenty of USB ports for data transfer, quick charging or connecting various peripherals. In case we lack a LAN port, the dock also provides it for us, along with an additional headphone and microphone jack. read more
