That dock looks pretty cool, I must say.

Though I must also say that
"Modern day Ultrabooks are powerful enough that only the most hardened enthusiasts require anything bigger"
is false.

Unless everyone who wants to watch a 1080 bluray or play a game is one of the "most hardened enthusiasts".

You can play 1080p Blu-Ray rips on an a 2 year old ATOM powered system (Google Boxee Box). I would argue that PC Gaming falls under the "enthusiast" category, but even then we've seen plenty of ultrabooks that could tackle modern titles.

Where are these ultrabooks benchmarked? The Intel HD 4000 was pretty sad in MPC's gaming tests and the HD 4000 is the sole GPU of choice for many an ultrabook.

I would disagree with you that only "enthusiasts" play games on PC.

As I'm sure you're aware, the Boxee Box isn't an ultrabook and is therefore irrelevant. That said, as I've often lamented on this site: ultrabooks don't tend to have 1920*1080 (or higher) screens. Therefore they cannot truly play a 1080 bluray.

They just need wireless charging to go with that dock and then they would have a winner.

I'm waiting for Apple to make something similar, bring Dell to court to try and sue them, and then claim they invented this technology.

Just wait... it'll happen, I'm sure.

Would you put down money on that?

I just might.
