"Lenovo have fully embraced the universal approach of USB connectivity
for peripheral expansion and graphics and completely redesigned the
USB3.0 Dock, fitting a huge amount in such a small form factor while
totally embracing the ThinkPad identity," said John Cummins, Vice
President Sales and Marketing for DisplayLink. "The chipset previously
was awarded Best of Innovations in 2011 and its great to now see Lenovo
being honored in a product category here in 2013."
The Lenovo USB 3.0 Dock offers smart connection and device expansion for
laptops over a single USB 3.0 cable. The product provides dual head
video connectivity using DisplayLink's award wining DL-3900 technology
providing two DVI connectors along with Gigabit Ethernet, Microphone /
Headphone socket and 5 USB ports enabling users to connect a wide
variety of USB devices.
"Lenovo took design f the USB 3.0 Dock back to the drawing board and
completely re-thought the whole product from scratch to build one of the
smallest form factor docking stations available, measuring only 13cm
high x 4.5cm wide and 9cm deep," said Jon Heim, Director Accessories
Product Marketing from Lenovo. "Choosing the award winning DisplayLink
DL-3900 solution was an obvious choice for us and when combined with our
new design turned into a winning combination for both parties."

maximizing usability while minimizing space and connects to any Windows
based PC / Laptop, providing flexibility to IT Managers and enterprises,
enabling them a future proofed docking station strategy built on the
