We have reported 2 weeks ago that Microsoft had announced their new Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint scanner. And Today Microsoft has made this new keyboard available on their US store for $129.99.

If you have seen the Surface Keyboard that was launched alongside the Surface Studio last year you won’t find any difference at all in the way how it looks. But the only difference this keyboard has is it comes with Fingerprint ID sensor which will simply mean than now Windows Hello Fingerprint Authentication can be available to any Windows 10 device to unlock your device.

The fingerprint sensor which is placed below the right windows key of the keyboard as you can see in the screenshot of the introduction video of keyboard. This keyboard is made of aluminum frame which is not only lighter but also a lot stronger than others that are available. This new modern keyboard can be used both as wired or wireless. The wired mode allows it to be connected to PC via USB cable while the wireless mode will be using a rechargeable battery rather than having AA cells.

You can get it from the Microsoft store for $129.99 here. There is an offer for eligible students who can get it for $116.
