I'm setting up my workspace for doing mainly CAD school work with a P50 and the 40A5 230W Workstation Dock.
My challenge is I have quite limited space so I wanted to know if anyone has any experience or knowledge about a way to hang or put the Dock with the laptop in a holder to limit it's footprint.

Have you considered mounting the separate monitor and docking station on an adjustable gas-strut arm?

To be honest, I didn't know it existed, but it's definitely a good option!

I'm trying very hard to understand the issue here. You work in a closet or something like that? The laptop sits on the docking station so how much space are you trying to save?

forgot to include that I'm using an external monitor too on a not very big desk

if you are so short on space, why not just use the laptop without the docking station? Unless of course you need a very large screen, in which case you simply need a bigger space. So what is the dilemma here that you need someone else to resolve for you?
