iPad 3 / iPhone 5 Desk Dock

Anyone have suggestions for a snazzy way to cut down on cables? I currently use a cMBP, iPhone 5, and iPad 3. The iPad3 must stay as it is provided by work.

This leaves me in a conundrum of wanting a dock to clean up some cables, but having one lightning device and one 30 pin device. I really like something like the x2 or x3 InCharge, but am uncertain of the cabling implications there.

Goal is to free up as much desk space as possible, but still use my laptop as the charger.

Thanks!

I think some of the cheaper docks I have seen may work; the sorts that do nothing more than provide a stand and route whatever cables you have through a hole in the bottom.

I am looking for something a tad cleaner though.
