Review: diNovo Edge Mac Edition keyboard
15 October 2008
Excerpt: (1 items) Ever since Logitech released the Windows-only diNovo Edge keyboard , back in 2006, many Mac users have wished for a Mac version. Sporting great key feel, lots of special features, and a beautiful design, it was a drool-worthy input device—and, at $200, came with a jaw-dropping price to match. Two years later, Mac users finally got their wish. Thankfully, the diNovo Edge Mac Edition is just as much of a standout keyboard.
Pros: Built-in touchpad with mouse buttons can be used for cursor control or scrolling, Attractive appearance, Bluetooth wireless, Rechargeable battery, Thin, Lots of Mac-specific and programmable buttons and keys, Great key feel
Cons: No numeric keypad, Charging dock requires additional space, Touchpad cursor control limited, Expensive, Glossy surface shows smudges and fingerprints
Conclusion: What you will appreciate about the diNovo Edge, regardless of your design philosophy, is the responsiveness of its keys. Logitech boasts of a PerfectStroke key design that blends characteristics of both laptop and desktop keyboards in terms of key travel and key responsiveness. We found the typing experience was indeed satisfying, especially because its keys are spaced out well.
Pros: Expensive, Tougher competition with Apple's own hardware, Volume slider still horrible
Cons: Wireless and rechargeable, No USB receiver needed since Apple has one built-in, Improved touch-pad sensitivity, Convenient Mac-specific keys
