The description of the patent does not help us much to understand the reasoning of Microsoft about it: he says that, in general, the external scanners are comfortable and also those commonly integrated into laptops occupy a portion of the dedicated space. Microsoft same. so far, he has applied several solutions: from the square on the side of the trackpad on the Surface Pro Type Cover button and the "fake" dedicated in the physical keyboard separate desktop systems (shown in the opening).The middle range without compromise?
