English term or phrase: docking station
Definition from MicroLaw:
A platform in which you can install a portable computer. The docking station usually has slots for expansion cards, bays for storage devices, and connectors for peripherals such as monitors and printers. When a notebook (another term for laptop) system is installed in a docking station it essentially becomes a desktop system.

Example sentence(s):
  • This product is also the first docking station to allow users to connect through a single USB connection. Targus
  • We'd love to say that many have tried, but really, the bona fide docking station market dried up years ago in every sector save for enterprise, and while a few companies have served up "universal" alternatives, none of them were particularly well-designed. Engadget
  • Some models of docking stations are meant to stay at your home office and can be used with your laptop as a desktop replacement system.

Yes  Per Bergvall: Personlig foretrekker jeg det kortere 'dokkstasjon', men det er knapt tvil om at denne varianten er mest utbredt.

Definition from Terminologiliste for Microsoft-produkter:
En enhet som en bærbar datamaskin kan tilkoples med kontakter for strøm, ekspansjonsporter og periferiutstyr som monitor, tastatur, mus og skriver. Forankringsstasjonen gjør den bærbare datamaskinen om til en stasjonær datamaskin.

Example sentence(s):
  • Når du er klar til å overføre bilder fra kameraet til en datamaskin eller til å lade batteripakken, skal du sette kameraet i forankringsstasjonen. - Kodak service og støtte  
  • Dette feltet bestemmer hvordan parallellporten på forankringsstasjonen fungerer. - DELL systemkonfigurasjon  
  • Praktisk lading av den bærbare mens den er i forankringsstasjonen. - HP handleguide  

Forankring er i det minste et oppslagsord i Bokmålsordboka og Nynorskordboka, noe dokking ikke er.
