    I'm wondering if the Microsoft Surface is compatible with the Inspire. Also, anyone have any recommendations on the best place to buy? I've noticed B&H offers two 64-gb micro SDs with purchase. Would love to find a combo with a case or additional value-add.

    No, only Android or iOS devices will work. There is no version for Windows.

    What about the Samsung galaxy note 10.1 2014 edition? Any idea if it will be compatible?

    Yes, I read that too. I was just hoping someone could tell me if they knew of any new devices not listed there that would be supported.

    Given that they are advertising the video delivered by the controller for the tablet/USB and HDMI outputs is 720p, I would hope that a tablet with a 1440 screen (like the Nexus 9) would offer a very good viewing experience because no conversion of the video is required (such as stretching 720 to 1080).

    A laptop with an HDMI input can do it they are just few and far in between. If you want an example, I have an Alienware laptop from about three years ago with separate HDMI in and HDMI out ports. The in port can only display on the computer screen to use it as a monitor. I can not run it through software on the computer. So it is not helpful.

    i also have the samsung galaxy tab2 10.1 but it won't fit in the holder.
    i printed myself an adaptor for it. it works well for me. you have to make sure you have 4.2 android or above i think. you'll have to check on that.
    cheers
