    Multiple external monitor requirements

    I just got a 34" Dell 21:9 for $600 shipped from Amazon. I'm planning to get a second once my new home office desk comes in. I'm using DisplayFusion to split it into multiple virtual monitors.

    Two monitors AND the Surface itself?

    I highly recommend the Surface Dock for this. I have two 2k screens attached at 60Hz with the SP screen also active and it's totally plug and play. That's at work. I also have three external displays connected to an SP3 dock at home along with the device screen and it works great.

    Solved Surface Pro 4 i7 throttling question

    Okay, I've had the SP4 for a week or so now and have been using it heavily. It's a HUGE improvement over the SP3! It's not 100% perfect, but it's much closer to what I wanted/expected when I first bought the SP3. Under heavy load (repeated command-line and IDE builds of a decent-sized Java...

    Solved Surface Pro 4 i7 throttling question

    Thanks for the info. I pulled the trigger on an SP4 i5 8GB 256GB (basically the SP4 version of the SP3 that I have). I'm going to run it through the paces for a couple of weeks after I get it, basically hammering it the same way I use the SP3 today that results in severe throttling. Hopefully...

    Solved Surface Pro 4 i7 throttling question

    Thanks! That's very helpful. I was just trying to decide whether to get the SP4 i5 8GB 256GB or the SP4 i7 (either config) given that when it's not throttling, my SP3 i5 8GB 256GB works very well. That would save me a decent chunk of $$$ if the net effect is a much more consistently-performing...

    Any way to match docked/undocked DPI for display scaling?

    I know this is another dead horse thing, but I figured I'd ask a more specific version of the question. When I'm at home, I use the official dock to connect my SP3 to three monitors: 1) 19" 1280x1024; 2) 27" 2560x1440; 3) 24" 1920x1080. I also leave the internal display active, so 12"...

    New SP4 owner, want to keep it but....

    Have you considered a 4G LTE USB dongle? Obviously the SP4 only has one USB port and that may already be in use, but if not, it seems like a reasonable option.

    Solved Surface Pro 4 i7 throttling question

    Sorry if this seems like beating a dead horse, but I have searched and haven't quite found the answer to my question. I currently have a Surface Pro 3 i5 8GB/256GB and have generally enjoyed it, but the thermal throttling issues have definitely marred the experience. I don't use it for gaming...

    Beware of Andy

    I'm using Duos on my SP3 and am very happy with it.
