    Can anyone recommend a decent docking station for the MBP 13 inch (late 2011).

    I'd look at hengedock they are pretty nice, and make everything easy once you set them up

    I have a 27' imac, but i need somewhere to dock the macbook pro to save space...

    I have looked at them, but most reviews bascially say they are nothing but cable tidys, and most of the cables u need are not supplied..... but they do look good!

    I had one and really enjoyed it, and if you already used an external monitor you should have most of the cables you need, you would just need a keyboard and mouse in addition to the monitor to run the macbook in clamshell mode.

    I just ordered by hengedock last week, going to pick it up today. I'll post a quick review when I get it set up.

    Aren't docking stations in general nothing more than a fancy and expensive way to keep cables tidy?

    In the case of a Mac, pretty much yes. On the other hand I have a Dell that has a port replicator/dock that greatly expands on the available ports and functionality of the machine. But it also has a connector on the underside dedicated to that purpose that is the interface to the dock. Something our Mac's don't have. .
