If you're planning to preorder Microsoft's new Surface Pro X ahead of its November 5 launch, you can also now preorder the Surface Pro X Keyboard. The keyboard is available to pick up for $140 at the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab) now.
The Surface Pro X is an evolution in the Surface Pro line, offering a slim and light take on the detachable form factor with thinner display bezels. The 2-in-1 tablet is also powered by the custom Microsoft SQ1 mobile chip, which makes it the first Surface Pro to run Windows 10 on ARM.
The matching Surface Pro X keyboard is built to attach to the bottom of the tablet, just like Surface Pros of the past. However, the new keyboard also includes a dedicated charging dock for the new Surface Slim Pen, which will charge wirelessly when tucked into the keyboard.
If you want to snag the whole package, the Surface Pro X Keyboard is up for preorder now for $140 at the Microsoft Store alongside the Surface Slim Pen and Surface Pro X.
The Surface Pro X keyboard pairs with Microsoft's latest 2-in-1 tablet to give you a way to type on the go and charge the new Surface Slim Pen.

The lightest and thinnest Pro available
Available in a few different configurations, the thinnest and lightest Surface Pro to date is now available for preorder. It is expected to be released on November 5, 2019.
Wait, the Surface Pro X preorder doesn't include the keyboard or pen? It didn't say that when I placed my order.
I thought that was included too, but it doesn't seem to be the case.
Neither keyboard, nor pen are listed as in the box.
I fortunately chatted with Sales team before pre-ordering. Actually I was told the keyboard WAS included, but not the pen. If neither are included then I think I'll just wait for HP to refresh the HP Envy X2. That included both in a nice leather case for about $899.
Well, I might have an extra keyboard then. I was hoping for a X2 refresh too, but I but I haven't heard anything about it. Might not have sold in high enough numbers for HP to work on a second iteration.
Under “what’s included in the box” there’s no keyboard mentioned. Surface Pro has never come with a keyboard unless a bundle is on offer
Do existing Surface Pens work with the Surface Pro X? Obviously they don't dock/charge in the keyboard but do they work? For a light pen user it may be worth me sticking to my current pen from my Book 2 until I have fully tested the capabilities of the device and decide whether to keep it
Will this work with the pro 7. The pen storage is legit. Or is the pro x physically bigger than the pro?
Wow! Microsoft at it again. Keyboard and pen sold separately. Very harsh. As a long time surface pro user I don't get this. That's a hard core business strategy. What care about the customer? Nope not pumped about this surface event. It should have been a package deal. Oh well it's Microsofts loss there. Any mention of backwards compatibility with older type covers, and if so how far back?
Where are the additional colours, but mainly where’s the Alcantara option. I’ve pre ordered a 256GB model but don’t really want to spend £130 on a keyboard with the plain old material, it’s horrible compared to the Alcantara feel, but the device is fairly useless to me without a keyboard 🤨 Basically I don’t want to have to put up with the old material and then spend £150 on an Alcantara version later.

Surface Pro X Keyboard* for a full keyboard experience Which Keyboard is this post referring to does anyone know what the difference between the two keyboards is?
Where can I order the new slim pen? Ordered the Tablet and keyboard but could not find pen link. Anywhere have one? Thanks. PS - For those in Australia. Available for us too!. Just follow US links and it will ask you to go to Australian site...
I think this is the wrong keyboard for anyone wanting the pen dock. Looking at the image on the linked page it doesn't look like it has the pen dock. I went to Best Buy which has slightly better image and the $140 keyboard definitely does not have the dock. They have a second SKU which is Microsoft - Surface Pro X Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen $270 and the keyboard portion of that combo is definitely different than the $140 keyboard.
