Anyone here on Fosstodon use a #Thinkpad as their main machine?
If so, I have a Lenovo OneLink Pro Dock that I’ve never really used. Free to the home of a Fosstodon member if you’re happy to pay for postage and will actually get some use out of it.
Sorry folks, Fosstodon members only.

@kev multiple actually :) I've actually bought one for my work because their pc's sucked for what I needed to use them for. I mean how can you ever go wrong buying a used thinkpad for 40 bucks if they last you years :D
@piggo no, it’s sloped at the front.
@kev I use a T480 as my main machine – which isn't on the compatibility list you linked, oddly enough.
I've been thinking about getting a dock, but never have. I guess your view is that they aren't really worth it?
@codesections I was thinking about getting rid of my desktop and just using the laptop, but ended up keeping it, so ended up not needing the dock. I think they’re definitely worth it.
Hmm, well, maybe I'll find one that supports a t480. Shame it isn't on that list!
@kev Aww, my thinkpad doesn't have DP.
Hi, @kev . I run a T440s and think this dock fits. Don't know how much does it cost to deliver a 500+ grams package from UK to Uruguay.
@arlequin T400 isn't on the compatibility list.
@kev , you're right. My mistake. What a pity.
@kev my thinkpad is my work machine and my home pc. I don't have a desktop anymore. Cool dock, but my thinkpad is too old to use it lol
