Default Lapdock...?

Hey guys!!

Well I recently have acquired a Droid Razr. My Nexus has given me MANY troubles and was able to trade it in for the Razr. Now I am intrigued by the lapdocks. I have a GIANT alienware which is a beautiful and amazing laptop, but its to damn bulky to travel with back and forth to class with. I want something I can do some basic term papers on, surf the web and just use for general use. My question(s) are:

A) How good are these docks?
B) Is the 500 significantly better than the 100?
C) Can I still get the on contract price with my newly acquired razr?
D) I have an HP touchpad rooted with ICS, would it make more sense to use a bluetooth keyboard and mouse vs the lapdock?
E) Where is the cheapest place to get these and do they generally run for cheaper than on amazon?

Thanks in advance!

I have the 100 and it's pretty handy. I use it at work since all of our software is web-based and it works well. I also use it for browsing at home and doing work for school. It can be a bit slow at times, but it's usable. I picked mine up from the local corporate VZW store for 199.97, which is the cheapest I've seen it.

I hated mine and i was thinking to sell it. The catch was using it with a wireless mouse. It is pain to use the touchpad. Once I used a wireless mouse the lapdock started to appeal more and more to me. I have an Asus G series and I used to take it to work. Now my laptop is always at home and I use my lapdock .

I enjoy the Lapdock so much more sense I installed the leaked ICS ROM. It takes away Firefox, and get you a phone/tablet experience. I like that you can run app in phone or tablet resolutions.

Hi, good to know that you can use the lapdock effectively

How do you use your quick office app , i cant seem to expand it to "full screen", when it expands to full screen it just comes in the center and that serves no purpose. Is there an addon or something so that i can add to expand my documents to full screen so that work can be easy.
I am using Quick office 4.1.20 on Motorola MB860.
Any help will be appreciated
Thanks
Ron

For me using Google Docs through the Firefox browser works better for document editing.
