The Surface Pro 3 Docking Station, which supports multiple monitors and has up to six USB ports, is now available for pre-order from Microsoft.
You’ll be able to run up to three screens with the docking station – the Surface itself and two external monitors – “regardless of whether you have the latest daisy-chain capable DisplayPort monitors, HDMI inputs, or older analog screens (e.g. VGA or DVI),” writes Suneel Goud, Surface senior product manager in a blog post.
There are also more USB ports on the new Docking Station than on the original Docking Station, and more of them support USB 3.0. “As an added bonus, the USB 3.0 port on the Surface Pro 3 is still available for use when it is docked, so in reality you’ll have a total of 6 available USB ports when your Surface is docked,” Goud writes.
The Surface Pro 3 Docking Station is $199.99. To learn more, head over to the Surface Blog.
