I'm looking at 32g cards. Thinking it would be nice to already have that in hand waiting on the phone. I am still up in the air as to which case I am going to get, I really want to use the car dock and the HD dock but don't want to strip it out of a defender each time...

I bought a Patriot 16GB class 10 from newegg.com in anticipation of getting my new Atrix. We'll see how good it is. So far it seems fine. I've been using it in my BlackBerry.
Also, I purchased the car dock and the AT&T Atrix screen protectors when I ordered my phone. I really want an Otterbox case, but I don't think I want to take the phone out of it everytime I use my car dock. I also plan on purchasing the standard dock later (not paying $50 for it from AT&T).

I just got my Lexar card and want to format it for Android. Do I need to use FAT32 and what allocation unit size would be best for fastest writes? I read the latter should be 64 kilobytes.
Edit: Should I keep the mediamove software that is preloaded on the card and not format at all?

Keep in mind, you don't need a dock for the multimedia experience OR the webtop experience as far as I know - just an HDMI cable and a monitor to plug it into. I guess you'd need the multimedia dock if you want to use USB peripherals, but bluetooth should connect fine.
You don't even need an HDMI-in on your monitor - just get an HDMI to DVI adapter. I looking for mini-HDMI to DVI cables, and I couldn't find one, but they do make mini-HDMI to standard-HDMI adapters and that can be used with an HDMI to DVI cable.
In any case, don't overpay for any of these ridiculous accessories - at least not right away. That's early adopter tax. If the laptop dock or others don't sell, they'll have to drop the price. Or maybe we'll see some third party offerings down the road...

Here's an incredibly dumb question I suppose, but - I was trying to decide whether to get the standard dock & the HD Multimedia dock - I wanted a dock to sit on my bedside, to have the phone angled nicely, displaying the clock, as an alarm sort of deal, and any other bonus that would go with it.
If I get the Multimedia Dock, can it double as the standard dock as well? So, it's like a souped-up standard dock? A standard dock that can also do more? If so, I'll of course just buy the Multimedia dock by itself rather than both that and the standard dock. I don't mind moving it around.

I assume from looking at the videos and pictures that the mutltimedia dock has all the USB and HDMI outputs while the standard dock only charges. So I would believe the multimedia dock would do the same thing as the standard dock.
Obviously I dont know for sure but Im planning on doing the same thing as you.

When you first put your phone into the dock, it'll ask you what "setup" to launch: webtop, widget clock (your bedside clock mode), multimedia mode, or just do nothing. You will also be presented with the option to make that specific dock remember what your setting is, so it won't ask you again the next time you dock your phone into it.
Now, if you want to double as a clock and a multimedia/webtop dock, then obviously choose not to remember your selection.

Silly question from a newbie here. Finally joining what I call the "Android Revolution". I preordered my phone (can't wait to get my hands on it!) but have only found one place (Mobile City Online)so far that is taking preorders for accessories, but they have what appears to be pretty bad customer reviews. I would like to get my hands on the car dock and the HD Multimedia dock. Anyone know where I can purchase these docks?
