So I have been fooling around the laptop dock for a couple days now...

It is slower than any laptop I currently have and even though I rooted my new Atrix phone and setup wifi hotspot on it, the connection to the internet is pretty bad because it is also slowed down by the phone a bit.

I can tether same phone to laptop and its 5x faster even surfing the web.

Maybe after they do a couple of updates to the phone I would consider picking up laptop dock again. Think the $499 price point is a stretch if they want us to keep them. try $299 and they would have a big hit on their hands.

I paid $799 for the xoom and it is an amazing device, so why pay $499 for a 11" screen for my phone?

I just got my Atrix and I see the laptop dock as a novelty. That's not to say it wouldn't be useful to some just don't see the use for me.

I also bought it. It was just ok, speed with 3 tabs was acceptable.
I loved how my Atrix always had a full battery when I was done using the lapdock.

However, its uses were too limited. Mobile view was also a pain to use with the mouse.
