Microsoft had already positioned the Surface Pro as a laptop-desktop hybrid, but the company's new docking station takes the Pro line's versatility to a new level: as Forrester analyst JP Gownder pointed out in a blog post, Microsoft's tablet could soon qualify as a legitimate desktop replacement. The dock includes one USB 3.0 port, three USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, 3.5-mm audio input/output connections and one DisplayPort video output.

re: Microsoft Surface: 10 Best And Worst Changes
Are these changes going to do anything for the first tablets that rolled out? Will Microsoft let us upgrade by buying our old units back so we can get the new ones?
