    I know how to connect the SP3 to an external monitor, but how about the other way around? Is it possible to use the surface as THE external monitor, and not as the main computer outputting the signal to an external monitor? I have searched but came up with no luck. Thanks!

    Would be quite a cool feature, but alas nope. Would certainly be of use for my school work where I typically use my surface and a library computer at the same time, else I just take 2 surfaces with me.
