I’ve never found areal use for docks, I mean I have a laptop and a netbook and tablets but I don’t get the whole dock thing. if you like them you might appreciate the new Thunderbolt Express dock from Belkin that includes USB 2.0, FireWire, HDMI, audio, ethernet and Thunderbolts ports. I have to ask though, where is the UBS 3.0 ??
