There is not a lot to look at here, but Microsoft has a new $24.99 wireless Number Pad, as well as a new Designer Compact Keyboard, and a new 4K Wireless Display Adapter.

    <p>Finally, Surface has compact wireless keyboards and separate 10-key pads. I'll be picking up the keyboard for sure. My home office desk is too small to accommodate a full size Surface keyboard. I had been hoping Microsoft would eventually launch a compact Surface styled device. </p>

    <p>Are they not doing anything with the Arc Touch line anymore?</p>

    <p>I like these a lot… but I really do wonder why there is no standalone trackpad. I'm aware that Microsoft supposedly worked with Brydge on the one they just released, but the couple videos I can find on it call into question the latency. Is this an issue on Apple's Magic Trackpad?</p>

    <p>Reminds me of the "Magic" keyboard and mouse I bought for my Mac Mini but at a better price. Magic combo ~$200.</p>

    <p>Microsoft makes some good accessories. I use the Mobile Mouse now and it's been great for traveling and having Bluetooth has been handy since I don't have to deal with a dongle.</p>

    <p>It's really nice to see the numeric keypad release. I was looking for something like that a while back and I was pretty surprised by how little was available, particularly from name brands.</p>

    <p>Was there a price on the 'Microsoft Modern Mobile Mouse'? Or as I will now call it, the 'M4'.</p>

    <p>I wish they would release a Track Pad with all the gesture support.</p>

    <p>I wish they'd refresh the modern keyboard with fingerprint id and add the ability to support multiple machines. Or likewise, refresh the modern ergo keyboard to add usb charging, fingerprint id, and support for multiple machines. Both are great, high quality keyboards, but they've always felt like they skimped on a few features.</p>

    <p>If the keyboard is as bad as the Surface full sized bluetooth keyboard I don't want one.</p>

    <p>Would love to see the keyboard and the numpad next to a surface book keyboard, the key layout, spacing and ratio of the keyboard look the same, but is it the same size or is it smaller… if it is the same or close to the same size, and key feel is similar would love to get them… if not the number pad will still be high on my list to get</p>

    <p>I could have been interested in the compact keyboard, but Home and End imbedded in F-Keys is a deal breaker.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#581570">In reply to Daishi:</a></em></blockquote><p>This is the standard Surface layout.</p>

    <p>I wonder if the number pad will actually send the numeric pad key signal – all the usb ones i have just mimic the top row of numbers which means they don't do the functions i need in the audio software i use…</p>

    <p>I'm waiting on a new ergo keyboard. I still use the Sculpt, minus the keypad, and would like to see if they can do better (it's my favorite all-time keyboard)</p>
