A few weeks ago, I said Microsoft was releasing some new Surface desktop accessories. One of those was the Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard rebranded and updated for the Surface Studio era.
Now dubbed the Surface Ergonomic Keyboard the $129.99 accessory is available to preorder for a November 21 release.
Besides a new grey theme (instead of black) the ergo keyboard features a "palm rest covered in stunning two-tone grey mélange Alcantara." That's the same fancy material used in the Signature Surface Type Cover announced a few months ago.
Additionally, the new Surface Ergonomic Keyboard has the number pad built into the device instead of a separate accessory like with the Sculpt edition and it has Bluetooth 4.0/4.1 LE for connectivity. Unfortunately, it's not backlit.
Ergonomic keyboards are divisive, but I've been a convert for years. While they take a good few days (maybe even weeks) to get used to it's hard to go back to a traditional style.
Check out Microsoft's new promo video posted today to see why you should maybe consider getting one as it's not just about style.
I'll be reviewing the new one as soon as we get it into our
lab home and compare it to the previous Sculpt Ergonomic Keyboard.
Anyone here an ergo keyboard fan? Sound off in comments and share your experience!
