Surface Pen tip kit
The Surface Pro wasn't the only thing to get upgraded with the launch of the new generation — the Surface Pen was also bestowed with some cool new features. One of the most notable changes in the Surface Pen was the ability to switch pen tips.
This Pen tip kit includes four interchangeable tips that allow you to customize the way the Surface Pen feels and writes.
The two hard tips — the 2H and H — are considered "low friction" and feel similar to a hard graphite pencil, giving you the accuracy you need to write and the precision for drawing fine lines. The Surface Pen tip kit also comes with a soft tip (the B) which is perfect for making big thick lines when you need to, allowing you to add the perfect shading to your drawings.
The kit also includes an extra medium tip that is the same as the one that comes with the Surface Pen, so if you ever lose it you have a back up!
Microsoft Surface Dock
Worried about not having enough ports on your Surface? Have no fear, the Microsoft Surface Dock is here to save the day.
With two HD video ports, four USB 3.0 ports, an ethernet port, and an audio AUX port, this dock gives you all the ports you need to keep you connected to all your favorite devices. Plus, it easily connects to your Surface Pro 4 via the Surface Connect cable, making it easy to turn your Surface into a desktop power hub.
It's very compact too. At about 5 inches by 2 inches, the Surface Dock won't take up a bunch of room on your desk, saving plenty of space for all of the monitors and USB accessories you'll be plugging into it.
UAG Surface Pro 4 case
If you're looking to keep your Surface bright and shiny, the UAG Surface Pro 4 case is all the protection you will need.
This rugged case fits snuggly on your Surface and is made out of Frogskin non-slip grip material. It also comes with a built-in holder for your Surface Pen to ensure you don't misplace or forget the stylus.
It's compatible with the Microsoft Type Cover and also has a metal kickstand with five different positions so you will always find a comfortable position to proper your Surface up for work or play.
Brenthaven Collins vertical messenger bag
The Brenthaven Collins vertical messenger bag not only sports a stylish design, but it's also extremely practical. With a main compartment that comfortably fits your Surface Pro 4 and a separate front compartment with room for your Surface Pen and other accessories, this bag will keep you organized.
The entire bag has a foam insulating layer, which not only provides protection from mild damage, it also protects it from the weather. If it's cold outside, your Surface Pro should be able to make short trips inside the bag without feeling like a block of ice when you take it out.
Type Cover with fingerprint ID
Probably the most essential accessory for a Surface Pro is a keyboard, and there's no better option than the Type Cover with fingerprint ID.
The Type Cover from Microsoft fits perfectly over the screen of the Surface Pro, protecting it from scratches when it's not in use. It easily attaches magnetically to the bottom of your Surface Pro, making it a breeze to snap it on and off.
The added bonus of this Type Cover is its fingerprint scanner. No more typing in your password to log in, just simply place your finger on the scanner and get right to work.
intelliARMOR screen protector
This paper-thin tempered glass screen protector is only .33mm thick, but it offers excellent protection for your screen against scratches and other wear and tear.
It uses a silicone-based adhesive designed to be resistant to heat and water, meaning it should handle well wherever you take it. The intelliARMOR screen protector also ships with cleaning solution and a cleaning cloth, a nice addition which will help you clear all dust and grease when installing the glass — ensuring a clear screen with no unsightly bubbling.
