Nashville Airport has them too.

What I do like is the docking station bar at the SouthWest terminals in Charlotte. It's like a juice bar, but laptops, cell phones and other devices can dock, be used or charged. The bar stools are comfy too.

The next time I'm through there, I'll try to remember to snap some pics.

It's kind of like this without the behind counter:
