    $499 is a deal breaker but I pre-ordered the laptop dock with the Atrix, anyway, to try it out. The laptop dock is the only reason I ordered it too. I do like the fact that it has a 4" LCD. 4.3" (Droid X and Bionic) is just a little too large and 3.7" (iPhone) is just a little too small. The Atrix with the laptop dock is going to have to be really awesome or it will be returned and I'll go back to my Verizon iPhone 4 and wait for the iPhone 5 or the Bionic and continue with my 11.6" laptop.

    You are aware that the laptop dock will not work away from wifi w/out the tethering plan right? I mean, don't get me wrong, I thought it was a nice little gadget, but at that price, I could just buy a notebook and get the same thing, more in fact.

    300$ for an empty shell just isn't worth it.

    Kudos to you for taking a chance on it. Unless the company I work for decides it would be more convenient for me to ditch my fully capable laptop for this dock, I'll be just like everyone else who decided against it..... saving my money for something worth it.

    More like $499 standalone or $780 bundle. Do not forget as part of the bundle price you are required to sign up for tethering @ $20/month for 2 years ($480).

    Actually the way I read it was if you buy it at the 300 subsidized price you have to have the tethering plan and if you buy it at the $500 rate you do not have to.

    I'm wondering if the laptop dock will eventually be available at a reduced price once the mainstream stores get it.

    I believe the subsidized price for the dock bundle includes a rebate that relies on getting the tethering add-on as well. I think you'll still be able to buy the dock without the tethering add-on, at full price or from elsewhere, but there's still the question if you'll have the tethering forced upon you if you try to use the Firefox browser while on mobile data.

    I too am waiting for the laptop to hit Amazon, Buy.com, Newegg, etc. Hoping for a $200 out-the-door price. We'll see.

    ...and welcome to the forums, healthservices!

    I hope so! The thing is tiny and WAY overpriced as is. If tethering wasn't the catch, maybe worth $200? With tethering as, not worth more than $100! Maybe $150, it's really small (the screen).
