If you’re in the market for a new Keyboard and mouse combo, you might be interested to learn that Microsoft’s Modern keyboard and mouse are now available for purchase. The accessories were announced last month where it seems that they were designed for the Microsoft Surface Studio in mind, at least in terms of matching aesthetics.
However we suppose at the end of the day, this is still a keyboard and mouse and will play nicely with pretty much any computer. That being said, one of the key features of the Microsoft Modern Keyboard is that it comes with a built-in fingerprint scanner on one of its buttons, meaning that with the Windows 10 Hello feature, you can use your fingerprint as a biometric security measure to log into your PC.
The keyboard will be able to pair with your PC using a cable or Bluetooth, while the mouse will also pair via Bluetooth. In terms of battery life, it seems that users don’t really have anything to worry about as the keyboard is said to be able to last up to four months on a full charge, while the mouse will last as long as 12 months.
