Red face Docking Station Advice needed

Hello,

I have a Toshiba Satellite C75D-A Laptop. I want to get a docking station that can support 2 monitors (3 screens if I include my laptop screen). I was told a Toshiba PA5217U-1PRP is the docking station to buy ( I was told this by a Toshiba representative). My question is that eventually I want to upgrade to a Surface Pro 4 as the Toshiba is bulky and not a great laptop. Is there a docking station I can buy that will accommodate what I am trying to do AND work with both the Satellite for now and the Surface Pro 4 when I upgrade?

I appreciate any and all advice that is given. I am also curious about what is the best brand / type monitors to get if anyone can add in

Kindly,

Julieann

Sadly not. You're best off getting the SP4 dock and waiting. They're pretty good

That's correct, only the SP4.
