Advise on Blue Tooth Surface Pro 4 Compatible Keyboard

Recommended Posts

The DIL is looking for  good Surface Pro 4 Compatible Keyboard.  She has 2 workstations at the house and is tired of moving the surface pro 4 keyboard over to the other workstation and wants to get a good blue tooth keyboard and just leave on the other workstation.  Any advise and or recommendations would be appreciated.

Why Bluetooth? I have two Surface Pro typecovers, one for my Surface Pro 3 and another for my Pro 4. I have this dock which works with either one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAHMiTZNDyA

That dock was $199.99 new but I got mine from eBay with the power supply in perfect shape.

See, the Surface Pros have only one USB 3 Port. So the wireless keyboard and mouse I use with the dock has one USB receiver for both. But then I can't plug in any other USB like a USB drive. Here's mine:

Here's a used typecover for $35

Could you have one Surface Pro keyboard on one decks and the other  Surface Pro 4 Keyboard on another desk with the surface pro?  She wants 2 keyboards to work off of one Surface Pro.  I do like the docking station.  Thanks for the tip.

Sure just use a USB hub for the USB receivers for each keyboard. The Surface Pro only has one USB port, and the type cover magnetic bottom attachment.

I ordered her a docking station for her Surface Pro 4 and suggested the son get her this keyboard for the 2nd workstation,.

Thanks for the suggestion on the docking station which has 3 additional USB 3.0 ports.

Are you in the CO yet?

Lynda is and has been there since we moved. I came back to mow the grass after cleaning the house outside and bringing in the ChemDry carpet cleaners. I used to use Stanley Steemer but the Chem Dry was amazing! Less expensive and really did dry in an hour. It cleaned stains way better. So I've been here since late May and had the house on the market since July and just sold it three weeks ago, and we close a week from Monday, then I'll be home in CO by 29th or 30th. May be in time for Halloween. This time of year I am glad we decided to get two Subarus. I'm driving the 2019 Forester, she the completely restored by my guys down here 2006 Subaru Baja turbo. I may need the AWD if I get caught in a winter storm. Finally can unpack and set up my office and workshop.
