Actually, I didn't have any intention to buy any doc for iPad Mini. But since I have Elevation Dock for my iPhone 4 with iPhone 5 conversion on the way. It will be nice if I have Aluminum Dock to use with my iPad Mini. Also, I use iPad Mini on my bed to surf the net below falling asleep. Most of the time, I slip my iPad Mini in the drawer of my nightstand. However, it will be nice if I can charge it during my sleep!!
