Shop HP for the best laptop docking stations
Shopping for the right laptop docking station for your workspace? Browse the HP Store to find a versatile option packed with ports and connections.
Most docking stations feature all the USB Type-A ports you could need, along with data transfer, HDMI, and much more. Expect plenty of options with support for DisplayPort™ 1.2, USB Type-C, Thunderbolt, an SD card reader, and HDMI 2.0. You'll also find many docking station models with a Gigabit Ethernet port, which is perfect for PC gamers who rely on a high-speed wired connection during intense online matches.
Turn your laptop into a command center
When you need to work on the go, mobility is key. But when you’re back in the office, the best laptop docking stations will help you get the most out of your workspace.
When you’re ready to take on your next project, just lower your laptop onto the one-click-slide lock to instantly connect to power, external displays, storage devices, mice and keyboards, and more. With a universal dock that supports a variety of connection types, you're prepared to use any device – even legacy displays.
Automatically link your laptop and external monitor
Connecting one or more external displays
to your laptop used to be a hassle. Your laptop needs the right ports and you had to make sure they were available for use. We've all been there – you really need three ports, but there are only two open.
With a laptop docking station, you gain the ability to seamlessly connect to all of your devices simply by docking your laptop. You can easily sync three monitors or more with the right laptop docking stations, which is the perfect antidote for really maximizing screen real estate.
Take control of your external devices
Forget about the days of connecting and disconnecting cables every time you want to work in a different location, or fumbling around with your peripherals when you're stuck with fewer ports.
HP laptop docking stations are packed with all the ports you need. Plug in all your favorite accessories and external monitors, charge your phone, and leave your desk behind to work at a local cafe without an ounce of frustration.
Try the convenience of USB Type-C connectors
If you've spent much time shopping for technology recently, chances are you have come across USB Type-C
and devices that feature a USB-C port. This handy piece of tech truly provides a more convenient, streamlined way to connect.
USB Type-C is built with a unique reversible design that makes it easier to use than a legacy USB Type-A connection. Have you ever fumbled around the side of your laptop trying to find the right end of a USB cable? Say goodbye to those issues when you switch to USB-C, which has the same input and output, so you can plug into your docking station without giving it a second thought.
Plus, unlike a Type-A, one USB-C port can handle both data transfer and power delivery. That means you don't have to rely on a wireless connection to access files on your phone or search for a separate cord when you need to charge your device.
Improve transfer speeds with a Thunderbolt dock
USB-C isn't the only option when it comes to connecting devices. Thunderbolt is another useful high-speed option for handling multiple accessories, from external hard drives to multiple displays. You can count on your standard complement of USB-C and similar ports, plus support for the latest Thunderbolt port.
Like a dock with USB Type-C ports, a Thunderbolt docking station is an easy way to add more ports and wrap multiple devices into one dock. It also provides both power delivery and transfer, as well as video outputs. This makes it a particularly smart choice for connecting external monitors
Stay in the game when life keeps you moving
If you work from multiple locations, a laptop docking station makes it effortless to go from one to the other. Whether you’re moving between desks at your office or bringing your work to your home office, you have more ways to get things done if you use multiple docks.
Just connect to the docking station and you’ll have everything you need to take on even the most demanding tasks. Cut out all the hassle of juggling multiple devices and add a second dock to keep yourself moving quickly. It's particularly helpful when you also have to juggle multiple work environments.
Stop dealing with constant cord tangles and clutter
What’s more frustrating than being forced to disconnect and reconnect all those pesky cables every time you need to go to a meeting, work on the go, or want to collaborate? Without a laptop docking station, you simply can’t avoid dealing with an unsightly mess of cables.
That puts both your workflow and power supply at risk, increasing the need for daily maintenance to keep everything safe and accessible when you need them. It can also be hectic to add new cords to your setup, like if you want to use Gigabit Ethernet for a fast response time in your favorite online games.
Out of sight, out of mind
It’s easy to end up with tangled cords if you want to connect multiple monitors, use an external hard drive, and also charge your laptop. Not only that, but you have to connect and disconnect every time you move from one workspace to the next. Dealing with that many cables without a docking station can really slow you down, especially when you need to leave in a hurry.
A laptop docking station quickly cuts out all the clutter and associated hassle of cord tangle. It’s an innovative, one-size-fits-all solution to your productivity woes, enabling you to go from mobile to working on that next big project in no time – and you can do it the way you want.
A docking station truly changes how you connect. It makes each interaction as seamless as possible with a quick and easy way to extend your workspace.
Unlock your full potential with USB travel hubs
Looking for a dock with enough extra ports to manage all your peripherals while working away from your home or office? Consider an HP travel docking station, a handy device that can connect all of your must-have devices.
The compact docking station design is easy to stow and pack however you need. Tuck it into your bag next to your laptop's power adapter or just slip it into your pocket. It's very lightweight, too, and typically weighs around a single ounce – that's lighter than most smartphones.
HP's travel docks are also built with a wide array of ports, including support for video output from a single display. Concerned about connecting your docking station with older displays? You can rely on an easy-to-access HDMI port and VGA support. Finish work projects, catch up on your favorite show, or try a new game, all at the maximum resolution thanks to a crystal-clear video output.
You can enjoy multiple USB-C or USB-A ports on each travel dock, too. Just connect via the built-in USB-C cord and your docking station is ready to go, wherever work or life takes you.
Protect important files with a backup drive
If you’re interested in extending your experience to include backup support, simply plug your hard drive into the dock to enable automatic backups. With that feature on your side, your HP laptop will back up your important files and settings every time you place it in your dock. Plus, you get the benefit of additional external storage for general use.
Instant access when you need it most
The next time you need to work on a big project, just hook your laptop into your dock for instantaneous access to all of your large files and any external displays you need. You can also connect your phone via Thunderbolt or a USB Type-C to charge it or make a quick file transfer – perfect for editing videos or photos.
And when you’re done for the day, just remove your laptop from the docking station to quickly disconnect all your peripherals at once. That makes it easier for you to maintain a clean, efficient workspace.
