    does anyone know of any good docking stations for the macbook listed in the title?

    and any reviews based on your experiences with them would be great too.

    im tired of plugging and unplugging my entire desk on a daily basis

    thanks

    Mac's really haven't had docking stations since the old Duos. Your best bet is to buy a USB hub and plug everything into that. Then you only have to plug in one USB and one monitor cable each time you want to use it as a desktop.

    Ditto. Or grab a new cinema display. With one cable that features a usb plug, a mini display connection and the magsafe adapter, It's designed for the macbook.

    thanks for your help but...

    I have a USB hub but I'm looking for something that integrates an external monitor hookup, USB hub, and audio in/out into one unit.

    and while the cinema displays are nice, i dont have that kind of cash to shell out.

    im a college student that takes his macbook with him often, so plugging everything each time i come home gets annoying (and messy with all the cables)
