Microsoft - Surface Pro 3 DockRegular Price: $179.00
The docking station has two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports on the back, plus an additional USB 3.0 port on the left side. The docking station also provides a wired gigabit Ethernet port that the Surface Pro 3 tablet itself doesn’t have at all. Combine those features with the miniDisplayPort, and audio connectors, and the docking station is a must-have accessory for serious Surface Pro 3 use.
Power Supply Included
If you already own or are interested in owning the docking station that Microsoft launched alongside the Surface Pro 3, but have a newer Surface Pro such as the Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 2017, or Surface Pro 6, you might be wondering whether your newer Surface will actually fit in the docking station that was originally designed with the Surface Pro 3 in mind.
The Surface Pro design has not physically evolved much since the Surface Pro 3, meaning the docking station and newer Surface Pro's are still compatible. There have been some minor changes in the dimensions of the Surface Pro with newer devices, but only because Microsoft made the Surface Pro thinner over time. As such, Microsoft has released an adapter that you can add to the Surface Pro 3 docking station that makes newer Surface Pro's fit just fine.
Interestingly, this adapter is not required. If you want, you can manually slide in your newer Surface Pro and line up the ports yourself, the adapter just makes this process much easier. If you don't want to shell out the extra cash for the adapter, there's no requirement to do so.
