Hi, I’m Samuel from Taiwan.
Currently I have one more year to go in my masters program in clinical pharmacy,
and would probably find a career a hospital as a clinical pharmacist,
or become a medical sales liaison in a pharmaceutical company.
I’m currently using a ASUS T303UA i5/8G/512GB,
and hoping to get a EVE i5 in the future.
Also looking into the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga, but man that thing is expensive.
I currently connect my ASUS to a 21:9 monitor via HDMI, and also a Unifying dongle for my mouse and keyboard for data collection, creating slides for presentation, and some leisure stuff like movies, anime, or manga and sorts.
I should be doing similar things in the future, though where I eventually work at would greatly vary the need for multitasking…
So my primary use for Donald Dock would be at work or at home to have the V permanently connect
- connect to two monitors with HDMI or DP
- connect to LAN to access private hospital/corporate network
- two USB-C(3.2) ports, one PD enabled for charging, and the other for data transfer or other devices
- 2-3 USB-A (3.1) ports for other devices, preferably 3 or more so I can have one dedicated to my Unifying dongle or wired keyboard/mouse, and another one dedicated to my external HDD
- audio output, through 3.5mm audio jack, but it’ll be sooo cool if it had speakers
- MicroSD and SD card slot
- charge V’s battery while working with it
- preferably a slot to keep my V Pen
would be a plus, but not so necessary if Donald Dock had following features:
- TB3 passthrough for possible eGPU addon
- It would be AWESOME if I could transfer files between PCs if I connect another computer to the dock via USB
- eCard reader for WebATM or corporate credentials
When I vision the Donald Duck, it takes on a similar form factor to the ThinkPad Docks like the one in the following link:
But borrowing from the post from @s.auler, getting a Daisy Dock for on the go would be nice as well.
It would have be able to:
- have 2-3 USB-A ports
- 1 USB-C port that is charging enabled so I could either connect to devices or charge my V
- connect to projectors (HDMI and VGA)
For the form factor of Daisy Dock, I would really love it to look like this:
But this kind would be fine as well:
Thanks for bearing with my long post
