Now, the Surface also comes with a built in kick-stand so you can prop it up without any other case or accessory. You can also get a thin pressure sensitive keyboard, which attaches to the device via a proprietary connector. It connects magnetically and the keyboard can double as a cover. Both of the models come with two cameras, one on the front of the slate and one on the back. They both feature dual microphones and stereo speakers.
