Are you the proud new owner of a Surface Pro 3 or getting ready to purchase one soon? If so, then you will be pleased to know that Microsoft has two new guides available for download!

How many USB Devices can be plugged in at the Same Time ????
What is the BEST External USB Hub to use ????
What is the Spec for the Surface Pro 3 USB 3.0 connection and jack ????
I'm going to purchase a Surface Pro 3 if MS ever makes the 512 SSD model available.

It has one USB 3.0 port... I suppose you can use whatever you want on that one port, including a docking station or a hub.
Whichever one meets your needs... or am I missing something? I'm using a generic 7-port USB 3.0 docking station on Lenovo convertible, and it provides gigabit networking and audio. It's really handy for the device's primary purpose: playing music and Skype.
Why would it be different than any other USB 3.0 port? The guide says this is a full-size port, not a micro or mini port. The charging port is not USB at all, so you don't have to use a USB OTG connector like on most tablets.
Let us know how you like it. As much as I like the idea, Microsoft's hardware is a bit cost-prohibitive for me.
