    Netflix runs well on my Bionic thru the lapdock.

    As for the Razr fitting on the lapdock, not so sure it does without modifications. However, you can buy extension cables on ebay or amazon that would create a quick fix. My wife has a Razr and I got her the lapdock for the AT&T ATRIX (it was around $50 on a sale site and the Bionic lapdocks are hard to find) with the extension cables and it works fine.

    The Bionic Lapdock has a 10" screen like the 100, but the cradle is designed to fit the Bionic specifically. Extension cables do work.

    The 500 has a 14" screen and a webcam.

    Both the 100 and 500 can handle more phones than the Bionic Laptop, but at $50 the Bionic Lapdock was worth it.

    Thanks for the tip, but with the impending demise of Webtop I'd say hold on to your money instead, unless you're planning on it being a relatively short-term investment.

    I'm hoping we get webtop 3.0 like the razrs have. Sounds like that would keep it pretty functional, I use my lapdock quite a bit and would hate for it to just become useless

    I am running one of the ICS leaks and the webtop is a lot nicer. I have pretty much decided to look for a good swap for mine with the lapdock though. Mostly due to me getting a 10" tablet that along with the Usb keyboard case I got for it takes the place of the lapdock for me and makes it a bit redundant. Just gotta find the right deal.

    ICS has webtop 3.0. I've been running a couple different leaks for a few weeks. The only problem I found with 3.0 is the volume doesn't work on the lapdock correctly. 3.0 run like a ICS tablet there are mixed reviews on it. I like it 3.0 but I got my lapdock after I flashed to ICS so I never use 2.0.

    I'm selling my Bionic Lap dock...I've only used it a dozen or so times; it's in "like new" condition.

    Full disclosure: Webtop 2.0 is a half-baked nightmare of an OS. Like watching your child in a school play, I really wanted 2.0 to be a success, but it's an utter failure. I put ICS .230 on my Bionic a few months ago (mostly to take advantage of Webtop 3.0), and have been pleasantly surprised with how functional it is. My employer, however, recently bought me a Xyboard and Bluetooth keyboard, making my Lapdock completely redundant at this point (I still occasionally use it to super-charge my Bionic; the thing is a lightning-fast charger).

    I don't really know what a fair price on a used Lapdock should be, so PM and make me an offer - if you're interested. And no: no "for freeeeeeeee?) PM's please. :)

    I just got mine from the Daily Steals offer, it took just over a week to arrive. It seems to work fine, so here's a couple of quick things.

    The circles of plastic tape that are supposed to show if the package had been opened, well, they were cut, so my package had been opened. That said, it looked brand new, with the sticker still over the touch pad, no visible scratches or finger prints. Came with a power cable, user guide, and one of those cloths to wipe the screen. If anything else was supposed to be there, it was gone.

    The sticker on the Lapdock itself seems to indicate it was manufactured on Nov 7th, 2011. I don't know if that's when they all were manufactured, and they just never sold to expectations, but it is almost a year old.


    After reading a some threads here and other places, I have a couple of tips.

    I was constantly getting the "low memory" pop up. I ended up moving a lot of my apps to the SD card, from the phone's memory. I also turned off background data on the phone screen itself, then I did a quick "fast reboot" to clear the memory. I don't know which of those steps helped, or if it was a combination of them, but after doing all that I haven't had a single "low memory" pop up. I'm typing this from the lapdock now. I do only have one window open, trying no to tax the RAM, so I don't know what would happen if I started opening up windows like crazy. I was happy to have the memory warnings stop, so I wasn't going to push it.

    I've also heard it's best not to have the lapdock plugged in while you're using it, as the battery can get extremely hot. Now, that seems like a silly thing to worry about, "don't plug in your lapdock, durrr" but if it helps keep the battery from overheating and prematurely dying, then it's worth mentioning. Especially since I don't know if I have any kind of warranty getting this from Daily Steals.


    Overall, it's a neat little toy to play with. Worth it for the $50-60 range. Nothing groundbreaking, but fun to use.

    Got mine in a week too. Just opened it last night, it came when I was out of state on business. Mine had been opened too. No covers on the touchpad or screen. Looked unused though, and works fine so far. Got the low memory warning. Had several windows open though. I will try the steps described and see if that helps.

    Web dock 3.0 is amazing. Makes the lapdock completely worthwhile. I can actually use it without having to constantly fight with it crashing and locking up. The fact that Moto is abandoning the project once they finally got it right is disappointing at best.
