Yeah, I have a dock for my T500.  Mixed bag, that.  It's nice that I don't
have to mess with a bunch of plugs when I get to the "office", but I've
ranted about ATI Switchable graphics before on this list, and I've had some
trouble with the WIFI when switching between 2.4 and 5 GHz spectra, so I'm
a bit wary of the Linux support even with "all Intel" hardware.
