In all my years I have never encountered a more comfortable, stylist, efficient and cleanly designed keyboard.
I can type for hours and even days with no stress or fatigue, and I love the response of each keystroke.

Apple has created here the gold standard of keyboards, and something tells me they will outdo themselves again. …
