Microsoft no longer bundles the Surface Pro devices with the type cover, but Surface Pro without a Type Cover means you’re missing out on the opportunity to use the Surface Pro as a full-fledged laptop. In other words, you must use the type cover with your Surface Pro to use it as a laptop replacement.

And the good news is that Microsoft’s Surface Pro Signature Type Cover is now discounted at Amazon — it’s now available at a price point of $112, down from $160 — that’s a straight $48 discount if you do the math.

Surface Pro Signature Type Cover features

  • Features a full mechanical keyset, backlit keys, and large trackpad for precise navigation and control
  • Slim and compact, yet performs like a traditional, full-size keyboard
  • Clicks in place instantly — use in combination with Surface Pro 7 kickstand for a best-in-class laptop experience anywhere.
  • Luxurious Alcantara material on select covers is soft and smooth, yet durable and stain resistant
  • Close to protect screen and conserve battery, or fold back completely for a take-anywhere tablet
