    Has anyone ever heard of a dock for the apple lappys?
    I will be in a dorm so it would be convienent to just pop my laptop on the dock and have all of my peripherals connecting to the dock (printer, monitor, etc.)

    Of course, you could always go buy a PowerBook Duo :D

    a cheaper alternative is what i do. (assuming you have wireless access) just get a USB hub for your periferals, then all you ahve to do is plug in power, monitor and USB (then your firewire when you need to hook up your iPod). it works pretty quickly.

    I wish someone would make a dock-like thing for the 15", but it would be hard(er) because the ports are are both sides. Maybe a combination dock/stand? I think it would be right up MacMice's alley :D

    Does anyone here have that Bookendz dock?

    I guess you could make your own dock with a USB Hub right, as someone suggested.
