Iíve purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 recently, and ideally wanted to run it from a docking station.

After doing some research I found a Lenovo USB 2.0 Port Replicator with Digital Video, which read as if it would work.

Itís just a USB connection right?

I emailed Lenovo to check compatibility to make sure it will work. In their reply they said itís NOT compatible. I canít understand why?
So, failing this, are there any alternatives, such as a Universal docking station or port replicator that I can use with this laptop?

Iíve found the Targus USB2.0 Docking Station with Video, not sure what this is like?

Any advice or suggestions would be welcome.

P.S
I realise the ThinkPad line is designed for docking stations, but I couldn't find the right spec at the right price.
