Its time for me to upgrade my macbook pro(2007 model). I really want to get another mac, as they are pretty, sturdy, run windows if needed and have good battery. problem is theres no bloomin dock! At work i have a dell latitude that i can carry around, and just sits into a dock to connect to my prehiperhials when im at my desk. Most folks say its just a few wires, and only takes 30 seconds, but not really. I would have: 3 external disks. speakers. ergonomic keyboard(not mac wireless). ergonomic mouse(not mighty mouse). usb interfacing guitar pedal. card reader. monitor. Thats a short list and could be longer if i add ipods etc. My point is, or rather, my qestion is why dont apple do docking stations? they used to do them? Loads of other companies do them. This is not a flame on apple, so please dont get up in arms on this post. im just wondering what the deal is.
