Can i plug in something to dock my laptop in regards to vga adapter?

I had gotten a vostro laptop from dell for the office. I had purchased a kensignton docking station as dell didnt make a docking station for this model...undockabe i assume. right no the kensington accomadates the external mouse/keyboard, ethernet,usb printer so i only have a usb cable to the docking box to unplug and the power adaptor...I was wodering if there was a similar option for te video..The laptop has an external 15 pin vga adaptor ....Do they make some docking device so the video can somehow be output through usb to a larger external flat panel monitor.. this laptop is 13" buti hate to have the 15 pin screwed in or plugged in if i ther is a better solution for adding on a flat panel monitor for future purposes.

There are docking stations that have VGA out.
I would just purchase one with the VGA out and be done with it.
It shouldn't  be too much. :)


Here are a could of examples of docks that are probably more of what you are looking for.  there are many more just google universal laptop docking stations vga out
This sounds like what your looking for.

Do a google search for: USB VGA External Multi Monitor Video Adapter.

I haven't used any myself I'm afraid so look at some reviews
