I have believed for some time that the future of computing is built on docking stations where we can easily transition from a highly portable and capable tablet on the go to a full desktop setup with multiple monitors, full size keyboards, access to a wired network as well as other desktop peripherals.
When Surface came to market one of its primary accessories after the keyboard and the Surface Pen was the Surface Dock. That dock has been upgraded along the way and the current models of Surface, the Pro 3 and Surface 3, both have their own docks for this purpose.
Normally, they each retail for $200 but right now they are both on sale at Amazon with significant savings.
The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Docking Station is available for 42% off - $116.75 - a savings of $83.24 and is eligible for Amazon Prime.
It has the following ports available:
- Ethernet port
- Mini DisplayPort
- Three USB 3.0 ports
- Two USB 2.0 ports
The Microsoft Docking Station for Surface 3 is available for 37% off - $126.73 - a savings of $73.26 and has free shipping available to areas that are eligible.
It has the Ethernet and Mini DisplayPort like the Surface Pro 3 dock does but it only has two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports.
Right now the online Microsoft Store is only offering $40 off of these same two docks.
If you have been contemplating getting a dock for your Surface Pro 3 or Surface 3 this is a tremendous deal and well worth the investment.
Is the savings enough to entice you to get the dock for your Surface Pro 3 or Surface 3?
