looks like it would work. Its not a bad deal ether, cheaper than buying a keyboard mouse and screen separately.

it would? hmm I would have to be sure it is a $20 difference in prices so if the 100 works without being modded I will get that one over the 4g lapdock

The lapdock is designed to connect to a Motorola Android based smartphone. The connection isn't compatible with the Pi. I'm sure it could be modded to work with the pi but you would probably need some added hardware to make it work. Such as a converter to take the HDMI of the Pi and convert it over to whatever format the dock is using for video.

Ok looking into it more all you might need is an HDMI and USB adapters to make it work. Since the dock uses a mico HDMI and USB connector.
