Kensington's new Surface Pro dock will sate your Surface Studio envy

If you're green with envy over the Surface Studio, but it's a bit out of your price range, Kensington's latest Surface Pro dock may strike a solid a middle-ground. Called the SD7000 Dual 4K Surface Pro Docking Station, the dock lets you slot your Surface Pro into a frame that closely resembles the much large Surface Studio, complete with articulating arms and plenty of expansion ports (via The Verge).

Once your Pro is placed in the dock, the arms allow you to change its position to be used simply as a display or for drafting and inking. Around back, the dock packs in a pair of USB ports, USB-C, HDMI, DisplayPort, and an ethernet port. The dock also supports powering up to two 4K external monitors, so you'll have plenty of space to spread your work out if you choose.

Alongside the dock, Kensington will also offer an optional locking module so your Surface Pro will stay secure when docked.

The dock itself will be available for $299.99, while the optional lock will run $29.99. There's no word on when the dock and its accompanying lock will be available, but Kensington is showing it off at Microsoft's Inspire 2018 partner conference this week.
