Start with the docking station
Docking stations are a necessity. They connect everything to a laptop when working at home. Ask the following questions to identify the right docking station for your customer:
Keep them connected with cables
- What’s the laptop model? Check to verify dock connection, power delivery and max displays supported.
- How many displays besides the laptop need to be connected?
- What are the display resolutions?
- What type of display connections?
- How many USB devices? (Keyboard, mouse, webcam, headset, external HDD, etc.)
- Is an Ethernet port required? (Better network connection than Wi-Fi)
- Is this a stationary or travel dock?
Once you have the correct docking station, don’t forget the connecting cables.
Gotta have power
- HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort and DVI for video connections
- Display adapters to change from DisplayPort to HDMI, VGA to HDMI, etc.
- Longer USB cables
What is your customer plugging all the devices into for power? Do they have enough ports? Is it an old surge protector that needs to be replaced?
Certain manufacturers offer power strips and surge protectors to keep you covered, including some desktop-based power centers in case that space is limited or the customer only needs a couple plugs.
