Way thinner than the first gen one I have, and a really good size at 12".

Keen to see what you think in a week.

I am genuinely thinking of one as a replacement for my Helix convertible when it finally dies.

I don't use any heavyweight programs anymore apart from photoshop. So it makes sense to go smaller and lighter.

no, my screen is really quite good for what i need it for.

if its at home doing photo editing duties or work, its connected to my monitor via the dock.
if its at home doing foxtel go, its connected to the tv.
if its out and about or internet surfing on the couch/bed, then its perfect size.

of the things you've listed as a downside, the 1usb port is the only thing that i've gone "damn i wish there was another usb port", but then again, plug it in to the dock and bam, all the usbs plus ethernet that you want. :)

dont get me wrong though, i still love my apple macbook air, but the SP without the keyboard is perfect for most tasks i do on the couch. (technically, yes, an ipad/tablet could do my couch/bed duties just fine, but then i'd have to buy ANOTHER device)

With my kit, I also got the dock for the reasons Ash mentioned. The Surface Pro 3 dock adds an additional 5 USB ports. Add to that the USB port you can already use on the tablet itself and you have 3 x USB 3.0 and 2 x USB 2.0 ports. The docking station doesn't weight a lot and it fits into my bag no problem. The idea is I can use the docking station when I need a "workstation", or I can just undock and have a laptop/tablet to take into meetings etc.

Can you take a photo of the dock for me Noel?

I kinda don't see the point of add-on peripherals if the main item doesn't achieve what I want it to do. Kind of like a 3 wheeled motorbike...

On the back here, there is power input, display port output, 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, audio in/out, and also on the side of the docking station is another USB 3.0 port, and on the opposite side is a thing where you can lock it to a desk.

Does the base of the dock fold up to the back to make it a flat (albeit thick) rectangular shape?

It doesn't. It's all fixed in that shape, but all in all, it's only about 3-4" in depth, and about the two thirds the size of a standard keyboard. I bring the docking station with me because it means I can get the full desktop experience, but I still get the option of mobility when I need it.

Many people do this sort of setup, with multiple monitors, and wireless keyboard/mouse, with external hard drive etc when they are at their "workstations", and just grab the surface alone when they need to be mobile.

errrrrrrr, how has the ipad had those capabilities since 2010?
a couple of them maybe, but unless i missed some sort of genius app when i had my ipads, stuff in that video is pretty amazing.

anyway, that aside, how is any video showing the capability of a device (windows/android/linux/etc) an attack at apple?
"not apple's fault", well, who said it was?

I think HP might have mixed up their design drawings with something already on the market

HP Pavilion x2-10 Detachable Laptop




But with a 1.33Gz Intel Atom Processor and only 64GB eMMC storage... i think they missed the point
