Surface Pro 4 comes with a new Type CoverMicrosoft offers a first look at the Surface Pro 4's new Type Cover, which includes a scissor keyboard and glass trackpad.
This is the new Surface Pro type cover. This is the lightest, thinnest, type cover that we've ever shipped. The thing people say about type cover that they love, is how thin it is, and how sturdy it is. This product got lighter and thinner and more sturdy. But I wanna talk about the key set. We've put in a pro key set on this product. What you'll see is what we went from this type key set design where we have now filled out the entire key set for your hand. Don't worry though, this product works perfectly with your Surface Pro 3. Perfectly. So, if you have that one, and I see a bunch of you using Pro 3, which, by the way, you're super inspiring me right now, so fun. You can use this product, it's for you. But for Surface Pro users who haven't used it yet, or are coming on, you're gonna love it. The key set is beautiful, the key switch has a 1.3 millimeter travel. It really is, it's 19 millimeters right now between key sets, it's what we call the pitch. It feels so soft on your hands when you type. Best part? We then took the track pad and made it 40% larger. That was a big deal. 40%. It feels beautiful. It uses the full power of Windows 10 and really comes to life. What do you guys think of the new type cover? Pretty cool. [SOUND]
