The Easy Dock allows users to wirelessly connect their laptop/netbook/Macbook to any traditional desktop setting: a mouse, keyboard, speakers, and a 15-21" external monitor. Consumers can have both the convenience of a laptop and the comfort of a desktop computer. Easier on the eyes, ears and hands, users will no longer have to squint at a miniature screen, deal with a below average sound quality, or fumble with a tiny keyboard.

Key features include:

* High Quality Wireless Transmission - Supports resolutions up to 1400x1050 or 1440x900 (wide). Streams HD video up to 720P and 32-bit True Color depth for high quality images. Relays 48 kHz, 16-bit stereo audio
* Easy Plug-and-Play Interface - Quick setup with pre-associated (paired) Adapters that do not borrow from or slow down your WiFi internet signal. Simply connect the USB dongle to your laptop and a receiver to your monitor, mouse, keyboard, and speakers. Your laptop will instantly recognize the dongle and begin submitting the wireless signal
* PC and Mac Friendly - Compatible with Windows® 7, Windows Vista™, SP2, XP®, SP3, Mac OS X Leopard (10.5), and Snow Leopard (10.6)
