Haha, I'll defer to you - I'm a computer engineer, but I only have 5 years experience
Unless you count life, then I've got 24
Sorry, I didn't mean to come off like an arrogant ass. I was just trying to make a point that the young men/women working at Circuit City might not know everything.
I do want to add one disclaimer. There may be some configuration of docking station out there that could affect the speed and efficiency of your laptop. I just have never seen or worked with them. That's probably becuase any docking station that reduced the operation of your laptop wouldn't enjoy much commercial success.
