It seems a lot, but it's not like it's just some Bluetooth wireless keyboard, it has to be custom made to fit and interact with the Surface (e.g., turning off when folded back). And is there a cheaper Surface Pro keyboard you can link to? Even comparing to other devices, I don't know if other 2-in-1s have cheaper keyboards, though even if they do, one should look at the whole package. I find the Surface Pro surprisingly okay on a lap. Yes, if you want a device to be using on a lap all or most the time, other forms may be better.
Good price for the fingerprint version but doesn’t have the Alcantra covering of the newer signature edition ones, which are very nice indeed (I have the burgundy). Depends what is more important on an individual basis.
I've used these keyboards since the surface pro 3, and they are far from flimsy. I can type for fairly extended periods on them. Yeah, they are expensive, but they are also seriously light, and I am still not sure how they get the keys too work the way they do without having inter-dimensional portals below the keys. Oh yeah, they are still in no way "lapable". The Surface Pro is a desk laptop.
Yeah It's a great bit of kit but £100 for a flimsy keyboard that types ok is still way overpriced. £150 is a joke.
That's not bad at all. As far as I know, it doesn't have the fancy Alcantra fabric of the signature keyboard. Having said that, I have found the standard keyboard very easy to keep clean.
