As nice as the screen might be, is this actually a benefit? I'm not
convinced that it is, unless you have your laptop / docking station on
a riser of some sort to make it even with your external monitor --
just from an ergonomics standpoint. I care a lot more about having the
ability to drive two monitors off of the docking station.

Incidentally, I haven't been able to find a dock that has two DVI
outputs -- while I appreciate that the dock has 1 DVI and 1 VGA, I'd
really rather have 2 DVI, or even DisplayPort (but I'm not sure anyone
is THAT cool yet).
