    Does anyone know (or think they know) if this will work with a Surface:

    http://www.amazon.com/MIMO-UM-710S-Powered-Swivel-Display/dp/B002RMPASG/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1351702880&sr=8-3&keywords=usb+display

    I have no doubts that the USB 2.0 interface would work, but I don't know how much power the Surface's USB port can put out. If it's enough to charge a phone, it's probably enough to run this type of portable screen. Anyone try this?

    I don't know that the surface USB output would be able to power this thing.

    I dug this info up from there website also if it helps. How many Mimo monitors can I connect to my PC?


    Theoretically a PC can recognize up to 127 USB devices! However, with current PC systems, we recommend the following maximum number of Mimo displays:
    1-2 Mimo displays: 1.2 GHz CPU / 512 MB RAM
    3-5 Mimo displays: 1.8 GHz CPU / 1GB RAM
    6 Mimo displays: 1.6 GHz Dual-Core CPU / 1GB RAM


    as for actual power im not sure because it says it has a second usb connector if you need additional power.
