I miss Dell already...
Moving a Dell monitor from its default base to a dock integrated monitor stand is a thirty second operation, if you're moving slowly. It involves pushing a button to unlock it, removing the monitor from the base, putting it on the dock stand and making sure the button popped (indicating it locked in place properly).

Moving an HP monitor from the stand it shipped with to an integrated dock/monitor stand? It seems I'll need tools to remove the monitor, attach it to the arm on the dock stand and then attach the arm to the base. This involves using multiple sized allen wrenches and hex screws/nuts.

Why? Why does HP insist on making its hardware difficult, non standard, and just generally annoying to deal with? Compaq lives on in HP's gutters, it seems.
