I bought the stickers to solve it. Nothing influences me. The adjustable keyboard also includes a cover, on the back you can adjust the bracket up to 165 degrees. Similar to the previous Surbook model. The keys are evenly spaced with intermediate gaps, and they are extremely striking and receptive, so they do not feel anything superficial.
