Microsoft has recently launched two new products for the computer segment – Microsoft Modern Keyboard and Modern Mouse. The Microsoft Modern Keyboard comes with chiclet keys, grey metallic finish and due to this looks very similar to the Surface Keyboard.

But the most highlighted feature of the Microsoft Modern Keyboard is the built-in fingerprint sensor that let user unlock the device, very much similar to the one on Apple Macbook Pro. The fingerprint sensor is placed between the Alt and Ctrl keys, usually where you will find the Windows key.
