Here are some shots of my blue keyboard cover and my Surface Pro 4 (with the Glass Screen Protector installed). I changed my sleeve pouch (12.1") to a smaller (11.6"). It is a perfect fit with the pen attached to the side.

I am going to create a recovery drive with my USB Drive. This USB drive I had also used for my Surface Pro 2 a year and half ago. So will use the same USB drive.

hmm interesting to see you got the 256GB version, but will store your docs on the (slower) SSD card. I too did get an SSD card but using that to store BBC iplayer downloads (for travel) and the odd game I installed from steam. I do however use OneDrive for my default file storage which is on my main HDD. Some things on there I have un-selected for sync to save space on my Surface though.

I have spent some time going through my iTunes though and managed to get rid of at least 10-15GB of old apps I don't even use anymore!

Like all my devices. I have put 3M protection film on the Surface Pro 4. I went with a "Crystal Clear - Carbon Fiber" film. I did the same for my iPhone 6s Plus.

I picked up a Sandisk 200GB microSD card for my Surface Pro 4.

I will use it for storing photos, videos, MP3, Office Documents and "other files".

Today I bought the Urban Armor Gear Cobalt case for my Surface Pro 4.

It is a pretty good case and does make the Surface Pro heavier but boy does it give some protection. Feels very solid.

Once you use this case you probably won't need a carrying pouch as it is good enough already. The case was a tight fit though and did cause some problem for my glass screen protector at one corner but I think it will be fine. Overall the case is pretty good.

I like the pen holder on the top. Now I know where I can put the pen when I am using the surface as a tablet.

Also I can give my 4 year old daughter my Surface Pro 4 to play and draw around. I was worried what if she dropped my Surface Pro. Now with this new case, I can relax a bit and let my daughter have some fun, too.

Because of my new UAG Cobalt Case, which made my Surface Pro 4 more bulky, I had to go back to the shop and change the pouch for the second time. Lol. I received a final exchange warning. So this case will have to be the one.

It seems slightly big on one side but at least I can put my Surface Pro 4 in it easily. The previous 11.6" pouch was too small. It was fine without the UAG case.

Anyway, I changed to a case which matched the color of my UAG Cobalt Case and the keyboard cover. The case is water proof so when I carry it to a business meeting on a rainy day, it should not be a problem. It also feels comfortable to hold.

Today I picked up the Surface Pro Dock for about US $115. I was at the store thinking if I should buy it or not and then the guy at the store told me that if I had credit card points I could redeem it as cash points and get it for no charge. The funny thing is that I had transferred nearly 3000 points to Asia Miles last week and didn't think I would have any points remaining but to my surprise I had enough to cash deduct US$93.

So I figured that I had been thinking whether I should get the dock or not but now that I only have to pay US $115 then it should be a better deal for me. So I got it.

I have already hooked it up to my Surface Pro 4 and all is well so far. Touch wood.
