    Im considering switching from my old laptop to a surface pro 3, as I travel a lot. One of the biggest things for me is when I am at home, I prefer to connect my laptop up via a docking station to two monitors.

    Can you connect the surface pro 3 to two external displays?

    So one of the external displays will have your normal desktop and the other external display has the extended desktop.

    Welcome to the forums. Does the Surface have a video port, like an HDMI?

    I believe that the Surface Pro 3's GPU is only strong enough to push ONE external HD Display, as well as still using the SP3's Display. I use a 43'" monitor with my SP3 with up to 4 PBP (Picture By Picture), for side-by-side multi-tasking.
