    I'm interested in learning the capabilities regarding driving external monitors. A Best Buy salesman told me that I can drive "many" high resolution external monitors by chaining them via the mini display port. I saw a video where someone was driving four monitors but using some kind of docking station. Is there a complete spec anywhere?

    I don't own a surface (yet) and won't until I get this question resolved.

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Holy crap. I thought after reading Nuspieds post about using a Dell u3014 DP1.2 montior, I'd check Amazon and maybe purchase a couple. Those montors cost more than a SP2 128gig computer. Not going to happen anytime soon for me. I'll wait until a pair of 24" of DP1.2 monitors sell for about $150 to $200 each.

    DisplayPort is not your only option for connecting external monitors.
