i've yet to see 1 person use a docking station ever, i've yet to see 1 person hook up an external LCD or keyboard to their notebook ever.
That's because I've never invited you over to my house yet.
My wife only uses a laptop and a netbook, has a 24" external monitor / docking station which has a built-in USB hub and all sorts of stuff attached to it like her 500MB external drive, the 9GB DVD burner, etc.
People at offices both my wife and I have worked at have had lots of docking stations in both the office and at home.
My desk is a digital zoo with multiple big monitors, a couple of desktops behind them that can toggle back and forth and use the monitors, my netbook is docked, the phone is docked/tethered, it's a big fat hairy cabled mess of stationary and mobile gear in a large device sharing USB orgy.
Maybe I'll take a pic just so you can see a docked notebook :)
Checking e-mail and web surfing isn't exactly high on my priority list either
It's high on mine - got lots of customer support to do, answering lots of questions, and the smart phone is totally sufficient for handling that kind of task anywhere from the bathroom to the barroom, or bouncing along in the passenger seat while my wife dodges traffic.
