Microsoft seems to have taken a chapter out of Apple’s playbook with their new Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID, which closely resembles the iconic Magic Keyboard. It’s got an excellently slim, sleek aluminum profile, which, like their Modern Mouse, gives the keyboard it’s name. You can pick it up in either gray or silver finish.
But besides sweet Apple-esque looks, the Modern Keyboard has a subtly, cleverly integrated Fingerprint ID reader button, located between the Ctrl and Alt buttons. The reader provides an extra level of protection, letting you log onto Windows with a single finger, as well as onto websites using Windows Hello – and without forgetting that 15 character password they forced you to create and quickly forgot.
The Modern Keyboard works with both Bluetooth 4.0 and when wired, and has a rechargeable battery. It’s compatible with Windows 8, 10 and Windows Phone, as well as Android and Mac – but it’s really meant for Windows 10 Surface devices.
If you love that sleek, modern aesthetic – and are putting together a Windows office or home entertainment – the Modern Keyboard is an absolute essential.
