Hell no. That's the last decent keyboard Apple made. The jello keyboards on the iMac are probably the worst Mac keyboards ever, and the more recent ones are hardly better. I literally can't use an Apple USB keyboard, it wakes up my RSI again... I've got two, and I only ever use them for hitting CMD+S if I want to boot single-user because the USB/PS2 adapter I have for my good keyboard has one bridge too many for the Mac's taste.


I was strictly speaking from an aesthetic point of view. The thing is pretty ugly when you sit it next to modern day Macs and LCDs on the market.

The only aesthetics I care about from a keyboard are how it makes my wrists feel.

Apple's concentration on style to the exclusion of everything else is nothing to cheer about.

I need to get another Performa 475 case and put a Mac mini's guts in *that*.

I'm not familiar with that model. Is it a full-size or mini keyboard? I tried to Google it, but only came up with a post of yours on MacNN. Laughing I like some of those Adesso keyboards with the built-in touchpads. I've always wanted a Matias Tactile Pro Keyboard, but they are so darn expensive.

It's an 84-key mini keyboard with full sized keys. The key action is very crisp and responsive, with solid tactile feedback on contact. It has no "Fn" key, or simulated keypad, so I wouldn't want to use it with a VMS system, but for most purposes the keypad is a waste of space. The cursor keys are full sized in an inverted T, with HOME, PgUp, PgDn, and END above the right arrow... a much more logical arrangement than full sized keyboards.

I like when they are up the right side like that.
