Set up a dual-monitor workstation The docking station makes it easy to turn your laptop into a highly productive dual-display workstation, by expanding your screen space onto an HDMI display and a DVI display. The additional screen space lets you work more efficiently, because you won't have to flip back and forth between pages or windows. Plus, when combined with your laptop display, you can create a triple-monitor workstation.
