Any ideas for a 3rd party docking station for this Acer Travelmate 4502LMi notebook?   Its a couple years old but still very operational.  

Per Acer: Thank you for contacting Acer America. There is no docking station option available for this model. You will need to purchase a docking station from a third party vendor. As Acer America does not test third party hardware/software we are unable to provide technical support or recommendations regarding this issue.

This site lists docking stations for some Acer laptops, but the 4502 is not listed.  You may want to contact them to see if they can reference one that is compatible.

This one works through your usb port.  I do not have personal experience with it, so cannot comment on functionality.

Thanks - I called superwarehouse - they don't think they have anything and suggested just going to a brick and mortar store to see for myself.  

The USB style one doesn't have video, so I'll need to keep looking.

Anyone else have an idea?
