I agree that the looks are similar. It's a pretty basic design though.

I've been using an original, corded PS/2 HappyHacking keyboard with my linux boxes since 2000.

I love it. I'd enjoy having a wireless version for Mac.

Right now, my Mini is in my living room, hooked to my TV. I use a Logitech wireless KB and rechargable Mouse.


I wouldn't move to this unless it went wireless, just for my application.

If you are a UNIX user, the HH KB is wonderful.

Not really sure what you mean hear. It doesn't take USB 2.0 to power a keyboard.

No it doesn't but to get USB 2.0 functionality though the ports it is necessary. In the case of the Matias USB 2.0 model they have even went to the extent of making the user plug in 2 USB cables. 1 for the keyboard and 1 to power USB 2.0 devices. This leads me to believe that a keyboard take a little bit of power and throughput.

This might have to do with it being wireless too. It probably takes a little stronger signal and power to get good reception from a far distance.

It's wired. They just want to make sure the USB dock gets full USB 2.0 throughput and power.

quote from Matias:

Two USB ports required.
The USB 2.0 Keyboard has two USB plugs - One connects the Keyboard and USB 1.1 hub to your computer, and the second connects the USB 2.0 Dock directly to a USB 2.0 port on your computer, providing full power and speed to the Doc
