The Touch Cover is a slim pressure sensitive keyboard that doubles up as a protective cover. It has a trackpad and some useful Windows shortcut keys. It weighs only 0.46 pounds with a 3.5-millimeter thickness. It snaps into place with a strong magnetic seal. Some users have expressed it being uncomfortable to type because it's flat and unresponsive. It comes in cyan, magenta, red, black and white colors.

Type Cover is a bigger keyboard that is often preferred to the Touch Cover keyboard due to its mechanical keys. It weighs 0.55 pounds and is only 6 millimeters thick. It clicks into place with the same magnetic attachment. It also has a trackpad and shortcut keys.

The Incipio padded nylon sleeve aids in keeping dust and scratches away from the Surface RT. It has an inner lining made of soft, faux fur that offers some cushioning from bumps and an external pocket for extras.

A Surface HD Digital AV adapter or Surface VGA adapter makes it easier to view content on a big screen for HDMI-compatible displays or VGA-compatible displays, respectively.
