    Looking for a basic docking station, but would like it not only to charge the iPhone/Touch but have audio output that can be connected to my laptop docking station.

    I see alot of "iPhone" docking stations at BestBuy, but does it have to say iPhone 3G to know it works with mine?

    May I ask what's wrong with the official 3G dock or if you have a case that supports it, the universal dock by Apple?

    They seem to fit your needs perfectly. I use mine only for charge, and I have its audio out hooked up with my desktop speakers (which I no longer use, just my new macbook with external monitor).

    I went by the Apple store today and paid $49 for the universal dock with remote control. I'll give it a try; I didn't know there was one, this seems to be just the ticket.

    if i was gonna cop out money for something like that, i wouldn't just buy a regular dock.

    i'd buy something like this

    you can turn the dock into landscape mode as well and it's wallmountable.
    model DC910
    $117 on

    Hope that worked out for you.

    I love the minimalist design of the universal dock/3G dock.
    It's so small that I often carry it with me when I travel.

    The Apple remote is also very nice to have around. It works with macbooks and Apple TV as well.

    Personally, I think the price is fair.

    That's really cool. I'm using the Logitech speaker dock for $130 because I like the rechargeable battery.
