    You know, something that I can set my MBP on so I can plug in a keyboard/mouse/monitor and go to town that way. Hell, even if there was a dock for the MBP... that would be money.

    Link me please. :bigthumb:

    TIA

    Also, I need to get a keyboard. Should I just buy an apple keyboard or is there something hot and great out there that is better and what is better about it? Thanks!

    Damn, I may have to go with just a stand because that dock is quite pricey. :eek3:

    My company is buying it so $40 is not bad, but griffin is out of stock because they are planning to release iCurve 2. So it looks like I will just wait for that.

    i picked up an icurve at fry's not too long ago for $40

    dunno if they're still available though. i don't use mine that often so i may consider selling it.

    I bought a monitor stand from Target for $19. It is just a mesh top, and raises it up about 3-4 inches...

    I'll get a pic when I get home...

    I bought an iCurve at my local Apple store for $40 in September. Maybe they still have a few in stock.

    .

    I'm digging the aluminum framework. It will match my MBP perfectly.

    It'a a monitor stand, but works great for me... just enough room to keep the mouse and my externald hard drive underneath and still look neat...
