Best Docks for Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Windows Central 2019

Lenovo did a fine job on the design of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme. It's a thin, sleek-looking notebook that houses a solid collection of ports. In order to attach countless accessories or hook up an ethernet cable, you're likely going to need a dock. Here's a short selection of the best out there.

Premium dock: CalDigit TS3 Plus

Lenovo added numerous ports to the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, but in case that wasn't enough, CalDigit's TS3 Plus should be at the top of your list thanks to its addition of 15 ports, up to 85W of power to charge the laptop, and sturdy construction.

With up to 60W of charging, support for 4K displays at 60Hz, and myriad other ports, this Plugable dock is a solid option for those on tighter budgets. It doesn't have quite as many ports as our CalDigit pick, but it's also about $60 cheaper, making it the runner-up if you can't get your hands on the TS3 Plus
