New Docks! 15-inch MacBook Pro

Prototype 15-inch MacBook Pro Dock

It's been a long time coming, but this should be a glimmer of hope for those of you waiting patiently for the 15-inch models to roll out.  Seen above is our first prototype for the 15-inch MacBook Pro.  We've implemented a number of changes that we will detail at a later date.

Two new features I can detail right now are the additions of a curved bottom inside the unit and keyed ports. The curved bottom helps stabilize the larger mass of the 15-inch MacBook Pro and improves alignment during docking.  The keyed ports will prevent the accidental reversing of cables during installation.  We approved the designs and are heading to production immediately.

    I’m very interested in the 15" MacBook Pro dock and have tried to pre-order. However, your site leaves much to be desired in trying to determine which dock is the proper one to order! My MacBook Pro, i7, SSD, Hi-Def screen, etc., was delivered less than a month ago direct from manufacturing, so it’s about as new as it can be. However, I can’t determine which of the docks it needs from looking at your site. The differences are too unclear for me. Can you help to clarify? I’m sure I’m not the only one with this issue. Thank you and best of luck. I’m waiting!!

    I am still patiently waiting for the 15" to be released. :) I hope it won’t be long, since this was posted at the beginning of July. Although I notice the dock in the pics is for a model that is a bit old (based on the location of the headphone and SD card slot). I hope the mid 2009 – mid 2010 is in production too!

    I think this will go nice with a larger monitor and the wireless keyboard / track pad. I just have to find a reasonably priced monitor with displayport and miniDVI…

    “We approved the designs and are heading to production immediately” sounds very promising :)

    Any news about the availability?

    We just moved our whole office to Apple computers and are desperately waiting to get six 15-inch docking stations. When and how can we order them?
    Best,

    Greetings from Germany. Looking forward to the mid 2009 15" dock. Trust me, there’s quite some business over here as well.

    I have been waiting for a long time for the 15 inch mack book pro model to come out! What is the expected release date of this item? I am signed up to be notified when it comes out, but I don’t see anything on the website that clues me in to when that will be.

    Very anxious to get one on my desk at work, at home, and one for my home theatre system. How long before you will be shipping and what will be the price of these units?

    I think this company is a hoax – just stringing anxious Apple fans along like some cruel joke!

    I just purchased a 13inch model, very excited about receiving it soon. Curious about the development and sale date of the 15 inch models. Will they be coming by the end of the year?

  • Cleo says...

    Why does your website still say Late 2008 – Mid 2009? That was a year and a half ago.

    I have preordered and am waiting…. … … patiently :-)

    While I do that, a question…

    I have a speck hardcase on my macbook. Can I expect it to sit well on the dock,
    or would I have to choose between one or the other?

    Guys, you could at least update the blog with real news, so people like me, who are desperate to get our hands on your 15-inch model, can schedule life depending on that…
    PLEASE LET US KNOW DETAIL ON PRODUCTION.

    Great work BTW!

    The 15-inch models better be here before the end of the year or I’m gonna be reaaaaaal salty.

  • admin says...

    The problem is we need more dorks with pocket protectors…

    Sometimes I wonder the same thing and I’m running this show. I hate the delays too, but it just takes a long time to bring a product like this to market correctly.

  • admin says...

    With hard cases you’ll have to choose between one or the other.

    Got mine a few days ago…love it. Very slick, nice looking, fits the bill perfectly! I’ve got a USB->Video adapter to have dual screen with my laptop in the dock…awesome. The only issue I had was the positioning of the mini-display, but rectified that with a little effort. Awesome job…only thing like it on the market!!!
