I am not a big notebook fan, I want more power and a bigger screen than the notebook can offer. My wife on the other hand works from a notebook and has to plug and unplug cables when she comes and goes with the machine.
If you work from a notebook too and are tired of moving cables around Targus has a new docking station called the Targus USB 2.0 Docking Station with Video (ACP51US). The dock sells for $159.99 and has lots of features. It has an angled top so you can use it to lift the screen of your notebook up higher.
