Microsoft has a fancy new Type Cover out for the Surface Pro 4 and a pretentious ad to go with it.

In it, people wearing the same fabric the type cover is made out of say things like, "two-toned mélange effect", "the Alcantara aesthetic is created at the polymer level", "it's not just an accessory", and "you live with it, and it lives with you."

Once you get past the nausea/hilarity though (or just watch the ad on mute), it is admittedly a lovely looking type cover. $160 lovely, though? Doubtful.
