Summary: I didn't expect to ever say this, but I like the Apple keyboard. Oh, sure, that statement completely ruins my street cred with the clicky keyboard crowd, but what can I say? Mechanical switches work fantastically in full-size desktop keyboards, but laptop keyboards are becoming a fact of life as notebook computers eclipse desktops in popularity. If you like typing on a particular type of laptop keyboard, is it so wrong to get a similar desktop device?
Excerpt: Everybody’s talking about the tablet. Everybody. So we decided to have a play about with Photoshop, and try creating a realistic keyboard mock-up which will likely be packaged with the new iMacs. We think the principal changes will be a color change of the keys to black, as well as possibly lighting up.
Excerpt: Apple has a brand new desktop keyboard that is – dare we say – sexy? It’s made entirely of aluminum, has a low-profile design, and is perfect for people who love a “laptop” feel from a desktop keyboard. It’s more useful for Apple users, but PC fanatics will also enjoy its ergonomics.
Pros: Low-profile design; great feel; takes up very little space
Cons: PC users will want to remap some keys; no Print Screen key
