Microsoft's Surface Pro lineup has a built-in kickstand that allows you to set it on a table or lap at an angle. It works great this way, but it's kind of limited. The kickstand demands surface area on your desk and can limit your setup, so if you want to get creative, you'll need to add a mount or stand. Whether you'd like to use your tablet in bed, in your vehicle, or just have it sit vertically on your desk, here are a bunch of the best Surface Pro stands and mounts that will work with models ranging from the Pro 4 all the way to the newest Surface Pro 8 and Surface Pro X.

If we're making some suggestions

Kensington's SD7000 dock and mount is by far the most expensive option in this roundup, but it complements the Surface Pro lineup in nearly every way. Not only do you get a versatile stand designed from the start for the Pro 4, Pro (2017), Pro 6, Pro 7, and Pro 7 Plus, you also get a ton of additional ports, alleviating one of the Pro's largest faults. The stand is built exceptionally well and matches Pro tablets, and provides enough movement to get a perfect angle for inking, watching videos, or standard computing. Add a keyboard and a mouse, and you have a setup that's a lot closer to a Surface Studio than anything else. This is the best Surface Pro stand out there.

If you need a tablet stand that's affordable and gets the job done without a lot of extra features, OMOTON's stand is likely your best bet. It sits on any flat surface with anti-slip feet, it has a single hinge to get a proper viewing angle more easily, and it's built from an aluminum alloy that matches most Pros. If you're looking to get your Pro off your desk but still see the screen, definitely check out this option.
