The only thing you've never talked, at this moment, I think is a Blue-Ray! So... ;)
EDIT: sorry, only find it in spanish, but I think its cool enough: http://naical.es/product_info.php?products_id=559

(and I know that won't fit anywhere the UX, but with it, will become a little greater ;) )

Thinking on new docking-mods, I've seen this on ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.es/2-5-3-5-SATA-HDD-Hard-Disk-to-USB-2-0-Docking-Cradle_W0QQitemZ170457525863QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_HardDrives_RL?hash=item27b00f6e67

...and made me wonder: could this be used to the hdd integration,and take profit of the card readers,and expansion slots,and somehow join that to the dock? (I mean with a minimum good-looking finish...)
With that,and the external BlueRay ahead, the UX put at the dock would be an awesome Desktop pc. :)

Yeah, you could mod that to the dock for sure:D It would take some skills with epoxy putty, but it wouldn't be too hard.
My UX is already a pretty good desktop PC.
I have a Samsunbg 19" UXVGA monitor, an external 60GB hdd (temporary, until I move up to something bigger) my Samsung Super-Multi optical drive with lightscribe, my Logitech speakers, and 2 USB hubs (4 ports each):cool:

Seagate and WD have 1Tb 2.5" HDD, but they are about 4mm taller than standard 2.5,wich is a problem for a laptop.The only trouble in this mod,would be the HDD will need a few mm from downside,wich could be solved adding 2-3mm feet.
