I bought the awesome HP DV9702EA laptop from PC World today. I noticed this rather impressive docking station that it was sitting, then i saw the price and thought its got to be a misprice. I doubt the cost value would be <£50 alone. Needless to say i bought it, got it home and along with the very heafty base in the box was a retail packaged spare HP 90W AC adapter - which actually cost £29.99 to buy on its own. Googling tonight, it would appear that the XB3000 RRP is probably somewhere in the region of £130, with Amazon selling it for £86.52
Quiet simply if you have a HP laptop you simply must get this base.
