Lenovo ThinkPad USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 docks unveiled

Serious work requires a serious workspace, and what better way to set up that workspace than Lenovo's new ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C docks? The Thunderbolt 3 Dock is, obviously, powered by Intel Thunderbolt 3 tech, and it offers an extensive array of connectivity options. The USB-C dock is largely similar, featuring a USB-C port as well as USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 options. The USB-C Dock launches first next month for $199.99 USD, while the Thunderbolt 3 Dock launches in February for $279.99 USD.

Users can connect a single or dual displays with up to a 3840 x 2160 resolution at 60Hz, or two displays at the same resolution at 30Hz plus one more at that resolution at 60Hz.
