The LandingZone 2.0 is a surprisingly good MacBook Air dock

New, 10 comments

LandingZone is showing off their docks for the MacBook Air at CES, and the LandingZone 2.0 Pro dock seems like a must for those who use their Airs as a desktop computer most of the time (and just have a lot of wires in their life). The design is fairly simple: all you need to do is slide the Air and squeeze the two opposing USB ports into place. What you get is an extra two USB 3.0 drives and an ethernet port, along with a security lock port in case you want to lock your computer to the desk. When you want to actually leave your desk, you can pull the lever on the back and disconnect from the device.

All told, the best part about this docking station is its simplicity. It's not the most attractively designed thing in the world, and getting the Air's USB ports aligned can be a little tricky. What's more, it requires its own power source, which is a bit of a bummer for those trying not to use too many outlets. But once it's set up, you won't have to spend so much time unplugging when you switch locations. It's available now for $179.99.
