Laptops Use Ultra-Wideband to Connect to Docking Station

Loraine Lawson

Laptops are great, but sometimes, you just want to sit down at your desk and enjoy a full-size monitor in all its vastness.


Well, Toshiba is making it just a little bit easier for laptop users to connect to an external monitor.


The company is selling laptops equipped with ultra-wideband wireless technology, which makes it possible for the laptop to connect to a docking station, which can connect to a full-size monitor, reports.


Although, to be honest, I never thought it was that big of a problem to set my laptop in a docking station in the first place. Plus, the laptop has to be within three feet of the docking station to work, anyway. At $3,079 for the laptop, plus $500 for the related docking station, I can't help but think I could save tons of money by manually moving three feet to insert my computer into a wired docking station.


But - big picture here - I suppose the real point is this could be one small step for laptops, but one giant step for an eventual wireless office.
