Surface Pro devices are great tablet computers that can also function like laptops. Simply attach a type cover (a special keyboard that can double as a screen cover) to the device and use it like you would a laptop. Here are some type covers we recommend to use with your Surface Pro.

How to Pick a Type Cover for Your Surface Pro

When purchasing a Surface Pro type cover, here is what you should consider:

  • Durability: Pick a type cover that protects your tablet’s screen from accidental bumps or drops and that will endure a lot of use.
  • Adjustments: Consider a type cover that has the flexibility to adjust to your positioning in your workspace, whether it’s on your lap or a desk.
  • Battery Life: Depending on your usage, consider if the battery is built-in and how long it will go without a charge when you’re working.
