Hi Everyone,


So i just had an idea to make a laptop dock for the samsung galaxy note 9 and 10 series. What kind of components would i need and is this a good idea?

That ultra slim screen that Linus just did a video on would work nicely for this: 

Other than the screen, you probably need a USB hub (and a keyboard/mouse or keyboard/trackpad combo thing) and a power bank to power it. (Linus did a similar concept in that video but it wasn't in a laptop form factor, just on the table)

will that work with the note series? also, i was thinking of it like the razer project linda.

Not sure, I watched a video of someone using it with a s10 so I guess it should work. 

y'all need to poop more often.

Easy, just buy a Tab S4 or S5e with a keyboard cover

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.


Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I would love to see @LinusTech to review the http://nexdock.com/

This is not an original idea, but not a bad Idea.

The Nexdock isn't perfect, certainly not close enough for me to spend my money on it, but the hardware is an affordable adapter for a phone, and could be another step before a name brand decides to approach this idea again.
