If you work full time from a notebook computer, you have to make a few concessions for portability. That’s doesn’t mean that you can’t work comfortably though so many notebook users end up looking for a better external keyboard, speakers, and a mouse to make things easier.
Many notebook users also get notebook risers to elevate the screen of their notebook to more comfortable levels. SMK has announced a new device that does most everything a notebook user wants with one gadget. The Notebook USB Audio Station (PDF) raises the screen of the notebook 26-degrees for visibility.
It also has a pair of USB powered speakers for better sound. A three port USB hub is built-in allowing you to connect your mouse and keyboard as well as an external HDD or a printer and the single USB cable to your computer is all that is needed. The USB Notebook Audio Station is even cheap at an MSRP of $59.99 making it much cheaper than most docking stations.
