    If you want to firmly attach the pen to the left side of your Surface Pro 3 check this out: Pen Magnet
    They also have a heat map of the screen and offer a solution for right handed people to rest their hands on the cool part of the screen.
    This should help since I do find that the screen gets uncomfortable hot quickly.

    Looks good! But I won't pay $9 for a magnet.

    Shipping is free however and the magnets are on a curve contoured base to match the pen profile.
    In the video they show the tablet being pulled by the pen magnet, so seems to be very strong magnets.
    I ordered one since I need something to hold the pen firmly.

    Please post your own experience here. I may buy one if their claims are real.

    Is there any concern about having rare-earth magnets consistently in close contact to the screen?

    Old CRT monitors were effected by such magnetism but not the LCD screen of the SP3.

    I bought one. For $9 it's worth a shot.

    I ordered one also.

    But I'm a bit concerned that I may put a pen with this magnet in my pocket, or on a table near my wallet - and erase credit card strips.
