    Can the Sp3/SP4 drive an external 4k display at the same time its internal touchscreen is active? at 30hz? at 60hz? I know the SP3 i3 version can't... I have one, it will drive a 4k display OR its internal display but not both. Same goes for the Surface 3 (not pro). But can the i5/i7 SP3 do it? What SP4 models can do it?

    Actually I was wrong... a SP3 i3 CAN drive an external 4k display and its internal display. So all SP3/SP4 should be able to... although a Surface 3 can only drive a 4k display with its internal display off. The SP3 just takes aa few more seconds than I waited the first time to send a feed to the external display.

    All of the Pros can (3 and 4). I think they can drive dual 4K displays @ 30hz and their internal display.
