    Yes, but they are all Bluetooth, which means (a) they have to be recharged, and (b) I've never met a Bluetooth keyboard for any device that doesn't stuttered and skip the first couple of keystrokes after it restarts.

    Pay attention!!! I said "cheaper," not necessarily "better"...

    I DID pay attention master - the ! in "Cheaper keyboards!" came across as an endorsement and I just wanted to temper expectations. :rolleyes:

    "Cheaper" would be interesting if it powered from the pogo pins...

    Steve, I can't thank you enough for the heads-up on this stand. It is, by far, the best Surface Go accessory. Not only does it clean up the top of my desk, but it solves my Zoom problem where I was putting my tablet up on a drawer to get a good camera angle. I just have to raise it up a bit and it's perfect.

    We live to serve...

    HOWEVER...$50,000 in small, unmarked bills would be thanks enough...

    Nice desk. I'm an oak fan too...

    Now, more to the point - why in the hell is it that only MS can produce a laptop or 2-in-1 with a high quality web cam?

    The Go2 is a nearly perfect Zoom device. The picture is crisp and clear from the camera and the dual mikes do a great job of picking up the sound. For some reason, I don't have any feedback issues. Once I got rid of our DSL line and had cable put in, Zoom has been smooth as a baby's behind.

    Our Court system has just adopted Teams as its video conference software of choice. I guess I'll be learning that soon. I found a good cheat sheet if anyone is interested. https://ref.customguide.com

    Thanks - that cheat sheet is gold...

    Your aunt had good taste. I bought mine when I first became a partner in my original firm in 1984 - creating my own antique I guess...still struggle with a keyboard deck for it, but otherwise it's a champ.

    It's amazing how far back the pendulum has swung on laptops. I don't get it. Just in pure size and weight, I so prefer my Surface Go2. My wife loves her new Mac Pro 13 but it looks giant compared to my Go.

    BTW, the stand for the Go2 is a great place to put your coffee cup.
