iPad3 Laptop like dock (like ASUS Prime)

Has anyone seen any laptop style docks like the one ASUS Transformer Prime has for that tablet. I've seen the Zagg and Logitech style cases or keyboards but would like something I can just snap iPad into even by magnet and use as a laptop.

Not magnetic... but Apple makes one that dock connector mounts to... charges as well...

What don't you like about the ZAGG/Logitech, looks like a decent product...?

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, or how functional it is, but it looks cool.

I've got this, and while it works, it just feels odd because of the ability to use the case at what I think/feel are odd angles.

This is what I am holding out for;

Check out 9 to 5 Mac. They have a story on it now. They are shipping to the US commenters have posted links to a us seller for $85 shipped.
The iPad 2 version does not fit the new iPad.

I was actually just browsing Kickstarter and came upon this little ditty:

Called "Brydge" - basically like the transformer snap-on keyboard...

That does look awesome.

But when I saw the Prime at a Best Buy, the Prime has this keyboard beneath the screen and you slide the screen up to reveal the keyboard. It's neat, strange that ASUS would abandon this for a more laptop feel.

I saw on Cnet (others have posted) something called the Bridge. It makes your iPad like a macbook air, just as thin! Wow!
It kinda temps me to go toward the iPad over the Macbook Air because of that gorgeous screen.....

This is what I was looking for but at $180 it's kind of pricey.

Guys the Logitech Ultra Flat keyboard is the best pair with the iPad so far. Build quality is amazing, and the combination looks fantastic.

The keyboard is surprisingly great.

I was thinking the same thing. For the price of the Brydge and the iPad you aren't too far off from buying an Air.
