Power Up Fujitsu Lifebook T904 with Docking Station

Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T904 2in1 comes with an in-box docking station [ or port replicator ] i.e. it is the part of the T904 box and not something that you have to purchase separately.

LIFEBOOK T904 has got the basic/required set of the built-in ports. These ports are distributed on the right and left sides of the device.

On the left side, it has got these ports:

  • DC-in
  • Kensington Lock support
  • USB 3.0 with Anytime USB charge functionality
  • Memory Card Slot
  • Smart Card Slot

On the right side, it has got these ports:

  • Stylus Housing
  • Pull-Out LAN Card
  • Pull-Up Power Button
  • HDMI
  • USB 3.0
  • Combo Auxiliary Port (Microphone + Speaker)

There is another very important port which is not available externally/directly. The SIM card slot is located inside the battery compartment which is accessible after removing the battery.

All this stuff is suitable for common use but what if you have some other/special requirements i.e. you want to connect your VGA LCD or you want to connect other peripherals via USB? You don’t need to worry or go for purchasing USB extension or other connects, here the docking station comes to your rescue.

As mentioned earlier, it comes in the T904 Box. The ports available with the docking station are:

  • Power Button
  • Kensington Lock support
  • 4 x USB 3.0
  • LAN Connector RJ45
  • HDMI
  • Digital VGA
  • VGA
  • Kensington Lock support

Fujitsu Lifebook T904 Docking Station and Port ReplicatorHere is a vine showing all the three modes of T904 i.e. normal, docked, and tablet:

Although due to the improved design, Lifebook T904 produces heat less than normal, using a docking station has an additional benefit. When the machine is docked, its position becomes slightly raised from the back which provides room for better ventilation. Please note, if you are doing some very heavy and resource expensive task, for the longer life of device and your own safety, it is recommended to use dedicated cooling stands with the device.

I have two displays at my work. I tried to connect both to the docking station but due to the port difference, it was not possible:
