    is there a docking station available for notebooks? Either a port replicator or docking station. I have a Mac Book Pro and it's the one (and only) thing I miss from my PC days.

    There's the BookEndz ones as well. Horrible looking things, in my opinion, and fairly expensive.

    There have been other posts on the forums asking much the same.

    Docking stations are only useful if you have a notebok with one of those universal connections just for the dock. Otherwise, and in the case of the bookendz ones, they're a ridiculous waste of money.

    edit: and they're ugly as sin

    Yeah, just a space saving mechanism. I'd be happy using the existing ports in clamshell
