Using Lenovo ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock on a Mac

The dock uses the DisplayLink driver to enable docking. The main dock product support page lists the DisplayLink windows driver but not the Mac driver. If you want your dock to work with Mac, you need to download the Mac driver directly from the DisplayLink website here.

Once it's installed, your computer should restart and your dock should work with your Mac!


  1. Can I have the exact model of the Lenovo dock , e.g. 40A?0?????,thanks!

  2. No it does not! Monitors will always stay black and will not be recognized. ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock do not work with newer 2020 MacBooks anymore! Accordingly to Lenovo support MacBooks will no longer be supported and hence you only can use the USB Ports but not any external Monitors with this dock anymore.
