Default Please Review This!!!

Hey HWC Reviewers,

Could you guys review this laptop graphics card add-on. Its called Vidock 2.

ViDock 2: High Performance Dual Display Notebook Expansion

What this thing does is that it docks to the Express Card slot and provides graphics powerhouse to an external monitor.

Thanks!!!

That's pretty neat. Should prove useful if they can offload all the decoding/encoding for HD video on a netbook hooked up to an HDTV.

How many new(er) laptops actually ship with the expresscard slot, how far back does that functionality go (when did they start putting the slot onto laptops), and do the low end laptops come with it?

(I'll do some of my own research on the subject, but would appreciate the previous experience of our members).

So is it a direct connection to the PCIe bus?
