This week Kensington introduced a new product which is designed specifically for Microsoft Surface Pro. The product is called “Kensington SD7000 Surface Pro Docking Station”, which can turn your Surface Pro into a mini Surface Studio. The product has the same Surface Studio design, including the appearance of its dock and zero-gravity hinge.

Apart from design features, it’s also a great docking station – it’s the first product besides the Microsoft Surface Dock that uses the Microsoft’s proprietary Surface Connect technology to connect, charge and transfer data. It has the ability to connect to two 4K displays via available DisplayPort and HDMI port. The dock also includes four USB-A ports, a USB-C port, an audio jack, and an optional lock module.

This is a great new option for Surface Pro users, including Surface Pro 3 / Pro 4 / Pro (2017), who wants an elegant docking solution inspired by Surface Studio. Kensington also confirmed that the device will be priced at $ 299.99 and $ 29.99 for the lock module but has not been confirmed when to be released yet.
