Conclusion: Still, if your fingers crave the extra breathing room, the Microsoft Sculpt Mobile Keyboard might do the trick. Plus, at $49.99 list (and discounted from that at quite a few online sellers when we wrote this), it’s a reasonable value, too.
Pros: Reasonably thin and light Bluetooth keyboard, Roomier than typical portable Bluetooth keyboards, Windows 8 keyboard shortcuts for touch actions
Cons: Flat, tightly packed keys require accurate keystrokes, Chassis attracts fingerprints, dust, Function and arrow keys are too small
Conclusion: While the Microsoft Sculpt Mobile Keyboard is preferable to an onscreen keyboard, its portable design and Windows 8 hotkeys don't make up for the fact that its shallow profile makes for a somewhat uncomfortable typing experience.
Pros: Portable thin and light design. Dongle-free Bluetooth connectivity. Great battery life.
Cons: Low profile isn't ergonomically sound. Glossy face prone to smudging. Non-rechargeable batteries. Keys aren't backlit.
