I should mention that I have an integrated video card
I have a Dell Vostro 1500 (Vostro 1500 Laptop: Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 (2.0GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB, XP Home) that I would like to be able to use with an Acer 22" widescreen monitor. I am a novice at docking stations/port replicators but the homework I've done suggests that there aren't any real options for a quality/reliable docking station that will accommodate a Vostro 1500, XP, with a 22" external monitor.
1. Am I mistaken - are there in fact some good docking station solutions?
2. Can the laptop be connected directly to the 22" external monitor & if so, what kind of parts are required?
