Here's the big news of the Microsoft event, and the most important product to show off for our members... the new Surface Pro 4. Microsoft took the Surface Pro 4 to a whole new level, packing nearly everything people asked for into this already amazing product.

Here's a breakdown of hardware and features for the new Surface Pro 4 from Microsoft:
  • 6th-generation Intel Core processor - 30% faster than the Surface Pro 3 and 50% faster than the MacBook Air
  • 16GB of RAM
  • 1TB of storage - 3
  • 12.3-inch 0.4mm Gorilla Glass display 5 million pixels and 267 ppi
  • New Surface Pen with 1 year of battery life - magnetic body so users can simply attach it to the tablet - also compatible with many of the apps running on the Surface Pro 4 - includes a built-in digital eraser that can also launch Cortana - multiple color options - included standard with the Surface Pro 4
Microsoft previewed several other accessories for the Surface Pro 4 as well:
  • Surface Pro 4 docking station features multiple ports, including 4 USB 3.0 ports, two 4K DisplayPorts and an ethernet port
  • New Type Cover includes an integrated backlit keyboard - a scissor design and a glass (!) trackpad - 40% larger than the trackpad on the old Type Cover - thinner and lighter than the Type Cover Microsoft released last year - now has a built-in fingerprint reader on the right of the keyboard
The Surface Pro 4 will start shipping on October 26th, and preorders begin on October 7th for $899.

Is the old SP3 docking station compatible with the SP4? I thought Microsoft made a guarantee it would be.

I didn't hear any guarantee but it did seem that the parts are interchangeable.

Thanks. I guess we'll see. :) I'm not trying to beat Microsoft up I just trying to see what my options might be rolling forward.

My understanding was from this blog post: Surface Pro 3 is for Business Especially - Surface Blog

But now that we have begun to establish our place in the market, we are pleased to share that the following Surface Pro 3 accessories are designed with our product roadmap in mind and will be compatible with the next generation of the “Pro” line of Surface:
  • Today’s Surface Pro 3 Type Covers
  • Our “infrastructure” accessories such as our power adapter, Ethernet adapter, and more
  • The Surface Pro 3 Docking Station
