Overall Review: No idea whether it was the one I got or a general build quality issue. Things like this are monolithic with no way to diagnose problems
Pros: - When it's plugged in, all the ports work
- Everything "wakes up" at once when you plug it in (i.e. dock with one motion)
- Stylish, comes with a tiny carrying sleeve so you can throw it in your bag
- I got it for $30
Cons: It doesn't stay connected very well. There's nothing but friction holding it to the Mac, and it doesn't sit at the same height as the laptop, so it sags...and immediately disconnects. I shimmed it up with a credit card, which helped a little, but it's still a bit flaky. I might have to add some velcro or something to try to keep it connected!
Pros: - Fans are moveable (side, front, back)
- Easy to build in
- Did I mention cheap?
Cons: - If you're looking for case innovations post the year 2001, this isn't the case.
