We have seen a handful of docking stations designed to add more ports to modern laptops, and this model from Targus brings some very unique things to the table. Not only does it sport four USB 2 and two USB 3 ports, but it can drive an external display through a built-in display link, and has a Gigabit Ethernet port for those stuck with Ultrabooks lacking such things.
It has audio ouputs too, making it a one stop shop for docking your laptop. What is really cool about this model though, is that it also includes a universal laptop charger – open the lid and there is an assortment of nibs designed to work with a wide range of different laptop models.
This is especially handy if you work in an environment where several people need to use the same dock, as it is a simple case of plugging in the new power nib and setting your laptop to charge, even if it is a different model to the previous owner’s. This alone will make the dock a must-have for some people, and makes this a very handy solution.
The Targus ACP71 USB 3 Docking Station not only adds extra USB, network, display and audio ports for your laptop, but it also includes a universal laptop charger.
