    I don't want to be one that guy whose "already talking about the next one" but..

    The Next Surface Pro (Surface Pro 5) should have the option of a solid keyboard like the Surface Book. It should be sold for more money alongside the thin colorful Type covers many of us know and love!

    Wouldn't this be a great idea. This would make the Surface pro's laptop mode finally just as good as a traditional laptop. Like a smaller Surface Book. Just don't put all the dang batteries into the keyboard and then leave the actual tablet with just mere bits of juice.

    Could it even be possible to just make a solid keyboard with ports and battery that has a magnet strong enough to hold the Surface Pro up without the Kickstand now? I never understood why they couldn't do this. Even if they did do this I would still like the Kickstand as it is nice to have when using it without the keyboard but still.

    The device is too heavy to work in a docked keyboard --- it would tip over. There's a reason why the screen of the Surface Book is much lighter than the Surface Pro 4.

    I wouldn't want to travel with a solid keyboard! The latest Type Cover is perfect for my needs. And if I need a solid keyboard on the desk I can have it now. It doesn't have to be attached.

    If I were to make a suggestion to Microsoft, I would go the other way around and make a travel Type Cover for Surface Book!
