Like its larger Surface Pro 3 and 4 siblings, Microsoft's more affordable Surface 3 tablet also offers a desktop dock option - and in the UK, that option has just become more affordable than ever.
The Surface 3 Docking Station features a gigabit Ethernet port, Mini DisplayPort video output (supporting resolution up to 3840x2600px), two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and a 3.5mm audio jack. Designed specifically for the Surface 3, Microsoft says that once you slot the tablet in, it will become a "full desktop PC [with] all the ports you need, so you can attach a monitor, keyboard, printer and more".
Ordinarily, the Surface 3 Docking Station costs £164.99 - the same price as the Surface Pro 3 version, and the new more compact Surface Dock accessory (which doesn't support the Surface 3).
But Microsoft Store UK has slashed £75 (just over 45%) off the price of the Surface 3 dock, which means that you can now buy it for £89.99.
However, this isn't a permanent price cut, but rather a special offer, which will continue until January 2nd, 2016. The promotion is also limited to one unit per customer.
