Substitute for docking station/multiple laptops.

Can these be used like a docking station?

I currently have a laptop connected to two monitor (vga and dvi). This allows me to freely take this laptop off and move around (switching back to the laptop only screen). It makes it very difficult to introduce another laptop to that scenario.

I would like to set this up so that I have both monitors on dvi, via a powered hub and to be able to switch out the laptop/pc with different ones (i.e. mine or my spouses’).

Does that make sense?

This will allow for sharing of peripherals as well on the hub (i.e. wireless keyboard/mouse and wifi adapter etc…)

If so, I’m on the band wagon!
