    I have no use for a dock at the moment, but if I did I'd go with a Henge Dock.

    not good - unless it's a TB, it's waste - for the USBs, it will only act as a HUB and that's all

    for now, only the the Apple TB display adds USB ports. There's the Belkin one, which is anounced, but not on sale yet:

    some of the Storage units with TB may add USBs, but they cost a lot ... it's crazy to spend as much just because we need more F***N USBs :eek:

    The TB is practically a PCIe bus - the USB ports on a TB docks are really EXTRA ports, not HUB extension

    The TB has restricted licensing by Intel as of now. I'm reading that it'll be open for the masses soon - in fact, with the Ivy bridge ...

    There definitely wont be any new mac books until this is out i personally very strongly believe

    They usually release new product during spring.

    I use a Belkin Swivel Hub now. Does the job!

    I'm holding out for the refresh in Q2 some stage. I'd like to see them improve the SSD's in the macbook air before i consider one, current read and write speeds are junk compared to newer SSD's. Definitely looking forward to Ivy Bridge and improved resolutions on the pros. I want a 13" MBP because I already have a 17" and I wanted something little to take to uni and hopefully, at some stage down-the-track, gig with but the current resolution on the 13" MBP is way too shit for a $1500 machine.

    My MB is almost 6 yrs old too. I have made a few minor upgrades so thankfully it is still running good for me. Still though there are a few updates I would like in the new MBPs coming out.

    If Apple eliminates the optical drives, what is the best way for me to go about getting music on my computer? Do I have to buy an external just to rip CD's? Beatport has only about 25% of what I play and I don't care for iTunes bit rates.
