    Hi,

    I have a 15” Ti-Book (July, 2003). I bring it back and forth from home to the office each day. At the office I use the notebook “naked” so to speak, however at home, I have it connected to external speakers, mouse, keyboard, and cinema display (marvelous too). Anyway, I do have a usb hub that limits the usb input into the notebook to one item, but I worry about damaging connections, especially the cinema plug. Is there a docking station or Port Replicator for Mac Powerbooks or iBooks???

    Thanks.

    Frank

    Bookendz is the only one I know of.

    Remember a port replicator still needs to plug into the ports on the Powerbook. You'll still get wear and tear on them.

    What it will save you is from having to find all the cables you normally plug in. Also, in theory if you plug the replicator in correctly, it will reduce wear since the ports housld be properly aligned.

    Thanks Steven, looks pretty decent for the PB 12". Though I have my doubts.

    Bear, for me it is not the wear or tear, but more of having multiple cables to undo. Sort of a pain. Looking at the Bookendz for the PB 12"; I am not sure that it is much better; one massive "cord" if you will.
