    I don't have a Pro - but I think that may be one thing they have done reasonably well.

    It's not enough. They are missing huge chunks.

    Oh boy....

    I have to point out generational gap here or something, as I posted on your Surface thread how I was able to type real swiftly and accurately with the touchscreen keyboard as well as the touch cover. The touch cover will need some getting used to though.

    Hmmm, I think I might go back to the local amazon showroom and type up a response with the touch keyboard like you did and the touch cover to demonstrate what I mean.

    Something wrong there Mr Parks, one of the biggest Apple Fanboys used a Pro for a week and he said it was a joy to type on, and he's a journalist. Quite a few bloggers have claimed it was very good to type on, I haven't seen too many people rubbishing it for that.

    The following is a review by Scott Stein on the typing ability of the Surface Pro, Scott Stein is a well know Apple Fan.
    . Type Cover, Touch Cover: Killer accessories, neither included
    Nearly this entire review has been written on the Surface Pro, using a combination of Type and Touch covers. The $130 Type Cover has an actual keyboard with depressible keys, whereas the $120 Touch Cover is a membrane keyboard. They both weigh about half a pound, and double as screen covers for the Surface.
    If Scott could say something bad about the Pro, I guarantee he would.

    It was a very long review, this is just a small excerpt.

    See those words, KILLER Accessories, that would have been tough for him to admit.

    I kind of have to agree too with that. I honestly thought touch typing on the Surface would be sucky but better than the ipad or android, but I found it to be lots better than either. It was just fine. I was like Data from Star Trek.

    I like to deal in facts, when an Apple Fanboy says something is a killer accessory, it's a killer accessory. Others have said much the same.

    I kind of wonder if the touch covers can be done without and just use the touchscreen keyboard....
