Toshiba has introduced a new docking solution for notebooks and netbooks that packs a toshiba-dynadock-pa3575u1prp-300ton of utility into a slim tower form.  The Toshiba dynadock U is a USB docking solution that contains a high-res graphics processor allowing the usage of big monitors with any notebook.  The dock packs a punch by providing a lot of features for even the most demanding user:

  • One cable connection from your PC to all your devices

  • View up to three displays simultaneously
  • Provides six USB 2.0 ports–two front Sleep-and-Charge USB ports supplying power even if PC is off
  • Hot swappable – add or remove most devices without rebooting the PC
  • Easily and safely undock with undock button
  • Dimensions and weight: 1.8” x 3.1” x 8.75” ; 1.13 lb
  • Ports: six USB 2.0, S/PDIF, LAN, VGA, DVI, microphone, headphone and lock slot
  • In the box: One Toshiba dynadock, base plate, USB cable, AC Adapter and CD-ROM

The inclusion of the HDMI and S/PDIF ports means the most sophisticated monitors and audio systems can be used with even the lowest netbook.  We particularly like the two USB ports on the front of the dynadock which are powered even when the laptop is not running allowing the charging of phones and other gear.  $150.
