Macbook Pro docking station

Insight – Photo Control BookEndz Docking Station for 15″ M…

One of the things that really annoys me about the MacBook Pro (well actually one of the ONLY things!!), is its lack of docking station. 60% of the time I’m using this as a desktop, attached to a USB switch (for mouse and keyboard) and a Dell 2405fpw screen. Having to disconnect these (by putting the macbook to sleep, disconnecting then awaking it) is quite annoying.

This looks to be a solution, although it’s a half arsed hack really. But 230 quid for this?

Apple should have added a replication port.

Oh well.  It’s still a right cracking machine.

    Hey Chris,

    Some other expresscard goodies

    Maybe get a PCI expander box and add cheap PCI goodness to your MacBook (eg PCI USB expansion, video capture, SCSI RAID etc)

    Don’t know what the Mac compatibility is like though . . .
