But I can buy a USB to serial convertor for 30-60 dollars. You have a network port, modem, three usb ports and a parallel port built into your A51m. I looked at that docking station but the description wasn't very detailed. What do you know about this thing that I don't?
BTW I am NOT trying to be critical of your decision to buy this. I just can't figure out what this thing has to offer for $100 that you don't already have built into your laptop.
i have 3 computers righ tnow, they are all on a KVM siwitch, id liek to put my AW on that swith while at home, i cant do that as is, maybe there is a cheaper alternative, i guess i never really looked into it...
id also liek to find a port repllicator with a PCI slot but havent been sucessful yet.
