    Yeah, finaly with gigabit network. Hreat. The first dock works very well, but could be much faster. I like also the new USB 3 Ports, and higher resolution.

    I’m excited about the Surface Pro 3, I really am.
    I got a Surface Pro 2 which I was as excited about when they were first announced and love it from day one of receiving it from.
    What I was disappointed about was finding out they stopped the rollout of the docking station (it never reached Australia), which I was also very keen on getting.
    My question is … is THIS docking station going to be released (in Australia and the rest of the world), this time or is MS going to promise a docking station and show pretty pictures but then in the end not release it?!
    I love your work MS and practically everything around me happens to be Microsoft gear (whether it be software or hardware), but if you announce it follow through please.

      I live in Denmark and ended up buying my dock from amazon US.. Almost paid double the Price, but I”ve been using it every day since.. So it was worth it for me.. I Wonder if the surface pro 3 will dock in the surface pro 2 dock? I mean its a bit tricky since the aspect ratio is different so maybe it will Work..

      It may get a contiguous release with the Surface itself, as they seem to be performing a roll-out of the Surface to every single territory they’ve already reached with the two prior models.

    I like the docking station, but $ 199,- is a bit too much for me. :-(

    would it have killed them to have an HDMI port on the dam tablet and Dock !!!! Jesus would have been nice to hook this up to my 3D Sony receiver and rock some sweet sound and video !!

    This doc is essential for professional use.
    Big low point for us. No dual video output. This requires using a hub. Big mistake design prodcut for me… : ( hope we see him in France in same time to the windows surface pro 3…
