    Hey guys, i am sick and tired of waiting for hengedocks to get off their butts and make a dock for me to buy and was wondering if anyone had any alternatives that do the same thing. By that i mean a way to put your MBP in something and have it work, as opposed to hooking everying up everytime you dock it.

    What do you guys use?

    Thanks

    I am with you 100% on that one. I've been waiting for a Hengedock for 5 months now - tried to buy one on eBay, too, but refused to pay $125+ for a $60 item.

    Problem is that I've yet to find a good alternative either... so I'm still waiting... :mad:

    some wood, a drill, saw, extra cables, and possibly sandpaper. oh, and possibly some felt or leather to make a soft-surface for sliding in the mbp. Come to think of it, this sounds like a fun project for me to try

    Don't forget the duct tape, chewing gum, and a couple of toothpicks.
