Apple patents Macbook docking station with integrated monitor

Apple Docking Station

Apple has just patented a new docking station with an integrated display. The idea would be to leave this iMac-looking device on your desktop connected to all of your peripherals, and then you can just slide your laptop in/out without needing to fuss with 10 different cables. It’s very reminiscent of the old Powerbook Duo.

It may be a little clunky for today’s Macbooks, but it would be a perfect fit for that ultra-portable Mac that they’re rumored to announce at Macworld in a couple weeks.
