    Hey guys, does anyone know if you can use old keyboards that have PS/2 connectors with a USB adapter on the surface RT.

    Yes it does! Not sure I would have thought about trying that, but had an old PS/2 keyboard laying around and sure enough it works.

    Glad I had an old keyboard and adaptor laying around to test out. Was pleasantly surprised that something so old just worked.
