I am seeking to interface with my Samsung Series 9 ultrabook through a larger screen and separate mouse/keyboard, ideally in a manner similar to how Lenovos are commonly docked in corporate environments.

I'm aware that commercially available docking stations are unavailable for most ultrabooks, but is it possible to emulate a "docking station" for an ultrabook, or at least recreate similar functionality? Is a wireless solution possible?

My plan had been to use an HDMI adapter to connect the UltraBook to a 24" monitor, and use a wireless mouse and keyboard for input, with the UltraBook itself stashed out of view.

Seems like the Title and your question are very different things... If you want to attract people to your actual question - I'd suggest fixing it. –  nerdwaller Apr 14 '13 at 2:54

As far as a wireless display is concerned, your ultrabook should support this feature. A common solution would be something like Intel WiDi. Alternatively, you can search for wireless adapters on any online hardware store like Newegg and get acquainted with the features.

Wireless mouse and keyboard are easily available today. They come with a tiny USB dongle which is just plug and play. You plug in the adapter, switch on your mouse/keyboard and you are good to go.
