    Hello,

    I recently acquired a PowerBook Duo 210 with a MiniDock. Has anybody had any issues on ejecting their MiniDock from the Duo 210? I read some manuals from Apple's site, on the Duo, although I couldn't find any good info on ejecting it.

    The handle is all the way up and only one side gets loose. Perhaps its because its just old; I'm not sure.

    I'd appreciate any info. Thanks!

    the memories

    Wow, really having to think here. I retired my 280c almost 8 years ago. But as I recall with my minidock I had to set my laptop on it's front, press the button on the back with quite a bit of force and rock the bugger off.

    I would not have gone through the trouble, and left it as a desktop machine, however it was such a fun conversation piece and work horse for me.

    Might have to get one again one of these days just for stinks and grins..

    Good Luck!

    Yup, tried rocking it as well, although I didn't want to break it. I appreciate the info though!

    10 months later, I still have it stuck on there and I broke the flimsy latch. It still amazes me that it boots up immensely faster than my windows xp laptop. :D

    Have you thought about posting in the Apple Collectors sub forum? You might get more help.

    Outside of MacRumors, there's a website called The 68k Mac Liberation Army (68kmla.org). They specialize in vintage Macs and I'm sure someone there might be able to help you.
