Kensington launches beautiful SD6000 Surface Go Docking Station
The Surface Go may not be the most powerful computer Microsoft makes, but it is definitely the least expensive. Despite its meager specifications, it can absolutely serve as a great tablet/laptop for home use, education, and business -- depending on needs, of course.
But can the Surface Go also be a desktop? Thanks to Kensington's all-new SD6000 Docking Station, the answer is an astounding yes! You see, not only is it a proper docking station, but it also props the computer up like a monitor. You can then connect up to two monitors, a mouse, a keyboard, external storage, hardwired internet, and more! In other words, the Surface Go really can be a proper desktop. In addition, Kensington is releasing new locks for Surface Go and Surface Pro that will keep it safe from thieves. They are quite cool, as they securely grip the Surface kickstand.
"The SD6000 Surface Go Docking Station is the first all-in-one Surface Go docking solution exclusively designed for Surface to provide a perfect blend of productivity, creativity, and security. Built on Microsoft’s proprietary Surface Connect technology, users can connect with confidence for a seamless dock and charge experience. Extend productivity via 4 USB-A 3.1 ports (5V/0.9A), 1 USB-C 3.1 port (5V/3A), a 3.5mm combo audio jack, and a Gigabit Ethernet port," says Kensington.
The company further says, "Leverage the hinged design to angle the Surface Go in the perfect position while a magnetic connection keeps the Surface Pen handy. Secure your Surface Go and dock with the optional locking module and choose between standard (K62918) or custom (K63251) keying solutions. The SD6000 is an ideal choice for offices with security protocols, point-of-sale locations, check-in counters, mobile carts, kiosks, education environments, and conference rooms."
