The $400 price tag is pretty expensive if you're just looking at the KensingtonSurface Pro Docking Station as a port expander, and there are lower-cost options out there, to be sure. But the real draw here is that it can turn your Surface Pro into an ad-hoc (albeit miniature) Surface Studio with its rotating hinge.
When in its base docked position, your Surface Pro will essentially act as a monitor, making it ideal as a desktop replacement while you're at your desk. The hinge allows you to rotate the Surface Pro to any angle you see fit. Sliding it all of the way down puts the pro into a position that's great for drafting or sketching, which should appeal to many creators out there. Once you've finished sketching, you can stash the Surface Pen to magnetic connectors at the side of the dock.
In addition to the articulating hinge, the Kensington Surface Pro Docking Station adds a USB-C port, four USB Type-A ports, Gigabit Ethernet, DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 2.0, and 3.5mm audio ports to the mix.
