    So me being the good friend I am, I briefly owned a surface of my own but I gave the surface to my friend as a gift...long story.

    I plan to buy a surface this weekend if possible however I am buying two. I really have no need for the pro version and I am buying a rt for my little bro.

    Can a cheap USB keyboard I purchased from best buy be attached to the surface? I ask because he seems to have a hard time using the touchpad and typecover things. There is no need for me to buy one for him unless 3rd party keyboards don't work.

    Just be sure you're ready to use up your one USB port with a keyboard. If you think you may need to insert a USB stick or other USB device, consider a Bluetooth keyboard instead.

    The Microsoft Wedge Keyboard is really nice! That's a Bluetooth device. And fyi, Surface handles USB splitters very well. Had a usb mouse, keyboard, printer, and flash drive plugged in at once!
