Solved!

I need a laptop with docking station- which one.....

no defined yet
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi folks,

 

I am looking for a cheap laptop with a docking station for my parents. They are nearly 80 years old. They also want/need a keyboard, a bigger screen and a mouse (they cannot work for a longer time just with the laptop screen).

So I think the best would be, that they can put the laptop into the docking station and work.
They also could take it out and use it somewhere else.
It just should be very easy to handle and it should be an about 15'' monitor.

 

They don't need a power machine (they only do internet, writing letters and watching photos etc., so nothing special).

 

My question is which HP laptop does have a docking port and which station fits with it.

I saw the "HP 250 G5"  which is an approximate specification that would fit.

Could you list one or two with the docking station that matches to it?

 

Thank you in advance for your hjelp.

Hi,

 

Looks like the HP 250 G5 laptops don't have docking port, they use one of the following port replicators

 

           HP Universal Port Replicator E6D70AA#xxx
          HP 3001pr USB 3 Port Replicator F3S42AA

USB port replicator is ok but it won't charge laptop, Would you line to spend more to get a machine with proper dock ?

 

Regards.

Thank you very much for your answer.

As I understand, the port replicator does exact tthe same thing except the laptop charging? Is this correct?

 

It depends a little bit whether to take a better machine.

 

Which laptops (also a little bit more expensive ones) have a docking port?

 

Thank you again very much for helping.

Hi,

 

Yes, and normally you have to open the lid to power the machine. For newer machines, the EliteBook class machines have docking ports.

 

My suggestion: Look at the docking station first the find a compatible laptops:

I'll check all the docking station and find the laptop that matches. ...that is probably the easier way.
