Apple New Wired Keyboard
Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great fee Hooked up the new keyboard today and its is a real site to behold. Very thin and lite weight. The new key design has a great feel and very large keys so you don't make many mistakes.

It is very comfortable to type on due to its slightly angled profile and separated keys. Additionally, this keyboard is one of the best looking keyboards on the market—almost unrealistically thin and light, and made from gorgeous bead-blasted aluminum. …
