    This actually makes some sense. Example, college student can take it on the go but come back to his dorm room and link up for some gaming.

    Why has it taken this long for a manufacturer to come out with a docking station with an external GPU?

    why not a 5870... $$$ that's why. A 5870 costs about as much as the laptop by itself.
