Surface Pro comes with a keyboard that doubles as a cover. This new Surface Pro Signature Type Cover is constructed with a fabric called Alcantara.  This material is smooth to the touch and features stain and spill resistance.  The keyboard has LED backlighting and a large glass trackpad.

There is a new Studio Mode thanks to the ability to lower Kickstand to a deeper angle thanks to the next-generation hinge. Studio mode is perfect writing and drawing with the new Surface Pen. Of course, you still get Tablet Mode which is a standard feature of any 2 in 1 device.
