At Microsoft's blockbuster event in New York today, the company pulled the wraps off its latest tablet — the Surface Pro 4 — along with a host of accessories for it. Chief among those are the new Type Cover and docking station, both of which are backward compatible with the Surface Pro 3.

The new dock has two 4K-compatible DisplayPorts (up from one port on the old dock) and four USB 3.0 ports (also up one from the previous model). The new Type Cover, meanwhile, has a glass trackpad that's some 40 percent bigger than the one it replaces — that's a big trackpad. It also features a fingerprint sensor that can be used to log into the connected Surface.
