Surface Pro 3 Docking Station goes on sale in Canada & US
A tablet is a tablet and does carry some decent capability of being used as mobile workstation, although it does have its fair share of limitations while you are on the road. However, a notebook would most probably serve your productivity purposes a whole lot better, although the “price” to pay might be portability in terms of additional weight that you have to lug around. Some hardware manufacturers realize this, which is why they have come up with a notebook that can be turned into a tablet, thanks to a free swinging hinge, although that still does not solve the weight issue. How about introducing accessories to a tablet instead that would allow it to function as a notebook? Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 is one such tablet that has just seen its docking station go on sale in North America.
