=== ThinkPad X2 UltraBase (08N1180) ===
The IBM UltraBase X2 is a portable dock for the X20 to X24 series ThinkPads providing extra ports as well as the originally missing drives and a set of stereo speakers. Together with the ThinkPad it forms a solid unit approximately double the height of the ThinkPad alone. Containing a builtin floppy drive and a [[UltraBay|UltraBay 2000]] slot, it provides flexibility in drive choice. It's important to note that the Ultrabay 2000 slot is not compatible with the secondary battery. Also, the UltraBase X2 doesn't provide a second docking port as the original [[UltraBase]] did, hence you can't dock the UltraBase to any of the other docking solutions.
