The fashion-forward Surface Pro keyboard covers are made of the Alcantara fabric that's so associated with the Surface lineup these days, and they're available in two different patterns. They don't come cheap, however; they're $179.99, or $20 more than the Surface Pro Signature Type Cover and $50 more than the regular Type Cover without Alcantara.
I'm all for the idea of making more stylish Surface Pro accessories, and I think doing so is a real opportunity for Microsoft, not only to sell more Surface accessories but to bump up the "cool factor" associated with the brand. I also like how the Type Covers are made of Alcantara, so they feel like true Surface add-ons. There's a thread in our forums dedicated to these new Surface Pro covers from Marimekko.
What do you think? Are the designs worth an extra $20 over the regular Signature Type Cover? If you already own a Type Cover, would you shell out more cash for another more fashionable one? And should Microsoft do more of these types of partnerships for Surface accessories? Hit the forum link below and chime in.
