The Belkin Notebook Expansion Dock Provides a Universal Docking Solution for Consumer Laptops

(Compton, CA) – October 10, 2006 – Consumers can now find high-performing docking stations for their laptops with Belkin’s new Notebook Expansion Dock. As the first available in the consumer market, the Dock connects through your notebook’s ExpressCard port, quadrupling your available bandwidth so you can run high-quality video–from DVDs, for example–without affecting bandwidth to your other USB 2.0 devices. The Notebook Expansion Dock will be shipping in North America in late November, with launches in Asia, Europe, and Australia to follow shortly.

The Dock’s unique vertical design minimizes the amount of space taken up on your desk. At the same time, the design uses convection to minimize heat buildup from the Dock’s GPU and provides additional safety by preventing people from putting their laptop battery on top of the docking station.

The Notebook Expansion Dock is the first docking station to feature ExpressCard technology, which connects at 2.0Gbps to provide unparalleled graphics quality and flawless video reproduction at a superior 1600×1200 resolution in 32-bit color. The Dock provides an additional built-in USB lane as well.

The Notebook Expansion Dock also gives you the convenience of a one-plug connection between your laptop and your accessories.
