    The only port replicators for macs are called bookendz (http://www.mac-pro.com/s.nl/sc.2/category.125/.f ) Unfortunately, they plug into each individual port on the computer and I'm not sure if they have them for macbooks or macbook pros. They run about $150

    Not trying to beat a dead horse here, but does anybody know why Apple doesn't make dockable laptops? They used to (pre-Jobs days I think) and every other major notebook on the market has a dock option.

    I'd LOVE something like this----> http://www.belkin.com/highspeeddock/ , too bad it seems to be only Windows compatible. I like it b/c it connects via ExpressCard slot, and it supports DVI (albeit only up to 1600x1200--I'd need something that supports 1920x1200 at a minimum); this would be a perfect solution for my MBP..
