Earlier this year, Microsoft released a $99 Surface Keyboard to go with its new Surface Studio all-in-one PC, but the company is now selling an even better version without the Surface branding (via Windows Central) . Welcome Microsoft’s Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID, which is basically the Surface Keyboard with a handy fingerprint sensor to use with Windows Hello.

The sensor is hidden in a normal key, and it can sign you in instantly with a simple press (be aware that Windows Hello is only supported on Windows 10 PCs). The new keyboard works with Bluetooth or a wired connection, and the Redmond giant promises up to 4 months of battery life with the included rechargeable batteries.

Microsoft is only selling its new keyboard in the US, Canada and China for now, and the company has yet to announce its availability in other markets. If you’re interested, you can get it for $129.99 on the US Microsoft Store.
