I'm a micro computer support specialist where I work and just gave one of the new style docking stations to one of my clients for use at home. He just emailed me back and said the new docking station I gave him was antiquated and wanted to know if we could get him one like is in his office at work. I was just wondering if any of you have had experience with both the new and the old style and could comment on which one they like. I asked this person to let me have his new one to setup at my desk and see what is involved in setting one up and using it. I would assume that you would need to make two connections. One from the USB port on the Surface to a USB port on the dock and a power connection from the Surface to the dock, but I haven't actually set one up yet.
