Re: HP Specter X360 Thunderbolt 3 dock station

Thanks for the update, that's good news.

 

I might give the 200W one a try for my 15".

 

I'll have to check the return policy.

That's why I love Amazon Smiley Happy

How many W does the 15" use? (I think you can look at the sticker at the back of the laptop and convert via Google the Amps+V to Watts.  150W might be good enough. Also I think the Thunderbotl 3 cable has a Max W rate

Re: HP Specter X360 Thunderbolt 3 dock station

I am searching as well for the docking for a 15.6 inches X360 2017. I work at Intel now and in the past I was product manager at HP for Latin America....
So I contacted my ex colleagues from HP, and the products manager don't have any info.... Just hilarious....

I will try soon the docking for zbook 150W from my ex colleague. He uses that one with his spectre (not x360) and works flawlessly...
Looks like the only way to find out...

Intel? They're some sort of tech company right? Smiley Very Happy

 

I'll be anxiously awaiting your test on the 150W.

 

When I looked at buying the 200W on Amazon all the sellers had 10-20% restocking fee. (not so on the 150W)

Thanks for that, unfortunately not a Thunderbolt dock (only USB-C).

 

(also not being able to get two monitors working seems a little weird -- but he is still working through it)

I know it doesn't help people with the 15in version, but I wanted to back up that the HP ZBook Elite 150W works well (Charging and 3440x1440 DisplayPort output (v1.1)) with my 13in version (Model 13-ac001na)

Re: HP Specter X360 Thunderbolt 3 dock station

Wilicino - I was curious how you got this to work.  I bought the HP Zbook Elite 150W to use as a dock for my spectre x360 13-ac0XX and am not having any luck.  I connected it with a standard USB-C cable and it seems to charge fine but I'm not getting any passthrough for my display (DP to a dell ultrawide monitor).  I had tried the plugable unit previously but kept getting connect/disconnects every 5-10 minutes.  Any and all help is much appreciated!
