This looks like it could be a nice docking station for Z's with USB hosting capabilities.

It's a USB 2.0 device with built in Ethernet, Keyboard & Mouse Ports, Serial & Parallel ports, and extra USB ports.

$49.99 today only (Friday. June 23rd) at Yugster.com

It looks like it normally goes for $85+
I don't know about drivers for all the devices, but I know that people have reported using most of those devices using only the drivers built into the latest kernels.

I don't own one, haven't tried one, and have never bought anything from this vendor.

One thing you might run into is a power issue...

Standard desktop/notebook USB ports push out more power compared to our Z's...

So if this isn't a powered hub... then I wouldnt expect it to work...

Good point. I had assumed it would have to have external power, but I went to Kensington.com to check, and they don't mention it. That makes it somewhat less useful. Of course, hacking it to add a power supply wouldn't be too hard.

WOOT! has these today for $34.99 + $5 for shipping. According to the discussion, it is not self powered and comes with an adapter.
