After four years, Microsoft finally updated the Surface Studio lineup with the Surface Studio 2+.

The good news is that you can buy many great keyboards for the Surface Studio 2+. We have options from Logitech, Razer, Keychon, and more, along with wireless and wired keyboards. Some of these keyboards also use Bluetooth and also wireless dongles, so you can even connect them to your other devices, like the Surface Pro 9.
