Laptop Features: Port Replicators, Docking Stations & Security

In this lesson, we introduce you to docking stations and how that actually works with a laptop or notebook computer.

Port replicators are port-friendly hosts that provide additional ports to facilitate connectivity the laptop doesn’t already have built it.

Docking station is a station with a stationary connection port housing that our laptop plugs or snaps into that connects with it the all in-office resources its needs as if a standard computer — monitor, printer, network and other devices that are not found outside of the office, its allows for a single-source/single port connection to network resources so that you don’t have to connect each of those resources individually.

We also have locking port on the laptop that is represented by a chain link symbol.  Its metal reinforced and use specific types of laptop cable locks that are secured around a table or something else heavy, stationary, and accessible by secure combination. This prevents someone from steeling or walking away with an unattended notebook.
