in a few days I want to buy a new laptop without a "real" docking port.
My question is:
Is there any external USB 3.0 dock which offers some USB, sound and
graphic ports (2x) with linux support on the market? I know some of
these docks (i.g., the Lenovo dock; see
http://blog.lenovo.com/products/dock-is-launched ), but all of them use
the same DisplayLink 3xxx chipset.
Or is there any alternative to a USB dock? I will use my laptop at my
desk and I have to work with it when I'm not at home. I even thought
about installing Windows on it to use the DisplayLink drivers and put my
gentoo into a virtual machine running on top of it. But this should only
be the very last option...
