What you need to know

  • The Surface Pro X Keyboard is now up for preorder at the Microsoft Store.
  • The keyboard attaches to the Surface Pro X like the regular Surface Pro's, but it includes a dedicated charging spot for the new Surface Slim Pen.
  • The Surface Pro X Keyboard is available for $140 and is set to launch on November 5.

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 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.
