    Dell XPS 13 Docking?

    Hi,

    I am just wondering if anyone know if the Dell XPS 13 has a docking port similar to the ones found on the Latitude range please? I am after a portable laptop but would like to dock it so i can enjoy the benefits of a desktop when at home.

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure the answer to this is no. I believe the XPS13 uses its USB3.0 ports for docking with one of these: Dell SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Docking Station : PC Accessories for Tablets, Laptops & Desktops | Dell UK

    So, yes, it can dock, no it doesn't have a docking port.

    No, because the XPS range is designed for home users.

    We've got an XPS 13 kicking around in the office and it doesn't have a docking port.

    I'm not sure if by the Latitudes you mean the regular laptops or the Ultrabooks, but we've also got one of the old Latitude 6000 series Ultrabooks which does have a dock, though I believe it's EoL now.

    The current Latitude 7000 Ultrabooks have both the regular docking stations and the WiGi docks available, so they may be worth taking a look at.

    Thanks for the posts. I am after something for home use. I want a nice big display and then something portable without having 2 separate devices. The Latitude 7000 looks like the thing for me.

    No, because the XPS range is designed for home users.
    They are under the business section of the Dell website.

    Is there still much need for laptop docking stations these days? Couldn't you just connect a monitor with an VGA/HDMI input and a USB hub for any peripherals?

    It isn't as neat, plus i want a dual screen really. Its quick and easy to undock etc. Plus i already have the port replicator for a Dell.

    They are in the wrong section then, because they're definitely not business laptops.
