Multi-monitor setup using notebook

I'm right handed. I'd like to use notebook with big monitor, docking station, external mouse and keyboard.

Question is, what is the reasonable setup? For now, I have notebook to the left of the big monitor, with X set up to use both monitors, and notebook "to the right" of the big monitor. Yes, it is usable, but moving mouse right to get to the display that is to the left of the screen is strange.

If I put notebook to the right of big monitor, I'll have no place for the mouse.

So... is there clever solution?

(I'd still like to undock and be able to use the apps I've opened.)
