    Its on an ergotron LX arm mounted to an Ergotron notebook tray. I have the Fujitsu dock stuck to the tray with industrial velcro. The t904 snaps in and out of the dock with ease. It can plug in closed (as shown), open like laptop, or be in tablet mode. In tablet mode I can drag it down to desktop level and use it like a mini-Cintiq. I have the same setup in a remote office where I don't have the Cintiq but ocassionally need to use the t904 to paint or sketch or even sign docs. To effectively draw on it it needs to rest on the desk top or it will bounce.

    Here's the remote office setup. Please note that is NOT an Ergotron arm on the right. The black Arm has far fewer config options than the Ergotron LX arms. In this setup I'm not using the notebook tray, I just made a slab of maple that the second dock attaches to. I took this pic just for you Meso. Most of the time the t904 is floating as a 3rd screen to the left of the big monitor.

    EDIT:
    Here;s a pic I had posted to another thread a while back. It shows some other views. Simple piece of cable management plastic tray on the back of the maple slab keeps the cables off the desktop. IMG_2261.jpg

    EDIT 2
    One more of everything floating. Normal setup for business.

    Well I suppose I'll update my setup. It has changed a bit since I last posted here.

    Holy crap!

    Does the theme from "2001 - A Space Odyssey" play through your head when you sit down at that rig?

    jnjroach, Does the Surface dock drive both of those monitors without a lot of tweaks? I was tracking the 4K monitor thread a year or so ago and thought there was some highly conditional requirements to get that to work. Is it plug 'n play now?

    I'm using the Dock and an Accell MST Display Port active hub and using the updated Intel Driver configured with a custom resolution to run it at 50Hz....

    Do many of the apps you work with regularly support scaling well enough to take advantage of the 4k monitor? I'm hesitant to move far above 100 dpi since too many of the apps I use don't scale well... I've been considering a 43 inch 4K TV though to be used as a monitor =)
