Many of us, whether we are working at home or in the office, require devices other than just a laptop to complete our daily work, whether it be an additional keyboard, a headset or more than one monitor. A docking station is a great way to connect your laptop to multiple screens and it adds more ports allowing you to connect USB devices such as a keyboard or headset. The ports on laptops are currently changing, more to USB-C type connections and having a docking stations allows you to add ports and therefore use older devices, which you may not be able to connect on a newer laptop. The transition between home and office environments is much smoother as you can simply unplug the laptop and everything else stays connected to the docking station.
