Surface Pro 3: Accessories in Advance

The Surface Pro 3 won’t be available in Canada until August 1 but in anticipation of that day, I’ve already ordered and extra Surface Pro 3 Pen and Docking Station.

I’m really looking forward to running two monitors off the Surface Pro 3. I should be able to do that with the Docking Station. From what I can see, there’s a mini-Display Port on the back of the Docking Station AND the mini-Display Port on the Surface 3 will still be accessible even when docked. It looks like you can daisy-chain TWO display port monitors from the docking station, but this takes two display port monitors. So I’m happy to connect to two output ports.

It’s the little things that count. Here’s an example.

There’s a magnet on the left side of the Docking Station to hold the Pen. That’s where the second pen will live. The other one will stay in the bag. Having two means I should always have one close at hand.
