    Hey guys!
    I am planning to buy the new 15" MBP with the Apple display. Does anyone know of a good docking station? I know the Henge docks, but I think I'm looking for something more sturdy..

    There are probably no docks available yet with the new thunderbolt connection, but if you have some suggestions for brands, that would come in handy (they'll update their stuff at some point).

    All the best,
    Sanne

    I have a Henge dock and love it. After initial setup, it has worked perfectly. It holds the laptop securely, and seems sturdy enough to me.

    Agree that the byte dock design looks like it might be a bit sturdier because the docking connectors are factory installed. However, I dislike the chunky shape and black color, and the fact that there are ports on both ends of the byte dock, meaning that no matter how you place it, there will be visible cables snaking across your desk. Plus, it will cost about $250 US. You could buy 4 Henge docks for that price!

    I wasn't aware of these & love the upright, bookcase style dock

    Thanks
