I didn't order a dock with my T400 (which is still on the way - hopefully it gets here soon, Lenovo gave it to UPS on September 6 and it still isnt' here
), and I have an aunt coming up from the States in November, so I was wondering whether there were some cheaper sellers than I could find on Froogle/eBay.
For the essential port replicator, the lowest price I found on eBay for Buy It Now auctions was $65 USD + shipping (~$10 from NC to my aunt in CA)
For the advanced mini-dock, the lowest price I found on eBay for Buy It Now was $110 USD + shipping (same seller, approximately same shipping cost.)
I would like the advanced mini-dock, but I'm only losing DVI and audio passthrough (at least those are the ones that are important to me.) Has anyone tried the T400's video quality through both docks and noticed a big difference using VGA or DVI with a LCD? (Answer will probably be "yes", but I'm already limited in budget because of the cost of the T400 (I'm an unemployed high school student))
Please help me decide between the two! (Cost is a gigantic factor)
