Hello, I have a Thinkpad E490 Intel i5, 16GB RAM, 1T Hard Drive laptop. I am about to be working from home and I need two monitors. I am looking at buying a docking station for the two monitors wanted to see if it will work before I buy it. I will not be using the laptop screen as I will be having the two bigger monitors.

Docking Station will need to support.
-two monitors
-ethernet port
-USB ports for keyboard and mouse

According to this data/specsheet;
https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad_E490/ThinkPad_E490_Spec.PDF
your laptop has the option to output video off the HDMI port and the type-C port. That being said, what monitors have you got to work with?

You could look into this docking station that shows up as compatible with your laptop;

I do not have the monitors yet. I am trying to find a docking station first then get the monitors to make sure they will all work together. I will look at the docking station you provided. Thank You
