Ah, if only Apple would bring out a subnotebook with multiple docking options again. I'd be so there...

Nice find.

I never got to see a real Duo and Dock. Seemed cool though.

I ran a consulting business on networked Filemaker and multiple Duos, one dock; all networked to Mac IIcis if I recall correctly. It was an awesome setup. You will need an old printer and old driver to get utility out of it. MacWrite, MacDraw and MacProject will run fine on it, no install necessary just a copy.

I would love to be able to similarly dock a MBP and gain additional RAM, Video and processor power.
