1. Having not just all your data with you on a single device, but having *running apps* using that data that can migrate to and from larger screens. Often I dock so I can expand an app I'm already using right then to the larger screen. Handy for multi-tab web research and email.
3. I work from home, but if I commuted (and the Librem 5 could replace my work laptop) I wouldn't need to commute w/ a laptop *or* a dock. Hubs and laptop docks are cheap enough I could leave one at home and one at work. Any work in transit I could handle directly from the phone.
@kyle this last one is exactly what I was thinking. Docks are cheap. Work already provides USB-C docks. I could easily stash docks at any location I frequent, and have no need of bringing my Linux laptop everywhere I go if I already have a Linux computer in my pocket. I’ve also got reliable and secure network access to my most powerful resources at home no matter where I am, so even if the Librem 5 lacks the power I can have it trigger actions on stronger hardware.
@kyle Yup, that's what I have in mind too - and I've got a small bag to hold an itty bitty bluetooth mouse, keyboard, and phone stand for the times when I do need to work on something without a dock.
Unfortunately I'm also sometimes on-call and can't use an L5 for work, so... only works sometimes :P
