Docking stations are great
; they allow notebooks to become entirely more
functional at one's main work desk, and they allow them to become
connected with an array of already-place peripherals (printers, mice,
monitors, etc.) The only problem that is few notebooks are designed
with docking stations that match perfectly, and those that are are
generally just normal business notebooks with lackluster specifications
and boring designs. If you've been wishing that a docking station were
made for your notebook, the Easy Dock may be it.
Source R&D has just introduced the Warpia Easy Dock, which
essentially is a wireless docking station for any notebook. It's
universal in nature and requires only a free USB 2.0 port on a notebook
in order to work. It's totally plug-and-play, and it wirelessly sends
out video and accessory signals that hit a receiver that's attached to
a small dock that resides on your desk. That dock can handle 2 USB
accessories as well as a DVI output, giving you enough to have an
external keyboard, external mouse and monitor continually plugged in
for use with your home-based notebook.
The monitor can use a resolution as high as 1400x1050, and it works
with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Mac OS X Leopard/Snow
Leopard. It's available starting now for $149.99, but honestly, we're
looking forward to a version that takes advantage of more bandwidth so
we can use our 1080p monitors without any lag or pixel problems.
