MacBook Pro Docking station???

I am looking to see if there is a docking station that would allow me to hook up my macbook pro 15 to an external monitor, KB and mouse. I know I can just plug them all in as I need them, but its handy to have a dock all set up that i just connect to. Plus, Ill end up with the dock connected to a KVM so i can run my future mac mini off of those same peripherals too. heh heh heh, Im a greedy man...

Is there anything available for that purpose?

thanks,

Can't get it to work... Sad (the link i mean)

Anyways. How bout something for the 17inch?

Oh also not to get off topic... I saw someone had a way to connect there Powerbook to there car and I was hoping to do the same with a MBP. Any suggestions or am I just SOL at the moment? I was hoping for a dock of some sort that sat infront of my console center (where my radio and junk is).

Whoa 300... Nevermind.. thats nuts... And seems like it'd take along time to connect anyways...

I'm waiting for them to have them available for the new 15" MBP. I filled out the pre-order form, but it was just to add me to an email list.
