top all that off, this is one cool looking keyboard. (Again,
refer to picture). It may not be that “cool” but still, it's
better than a solid white keyboard. This keyboard could easily
fit in with an I Mac with all its colors.
board also boasts an on-board mouse w/ 2 clickers and 4 directional
clickers. The 2 clickers are for the mouse, and the 4 directional
ones are there in case you don’t want to use the “pad.” I don’t
particularly like them, but since everyone has a mouse anyway,
it shouldn’t be a problem. If you want you don’t even have to
install the on-board “mouse. “The on board “mouse” is ok but
not comparable to regular mouse. This is not recommended for
gaming at all. On the other hand, it will be fine for you if
you are used to a laptop mouse.
onto the ratings. For Price I am going to be giving this keyboard
an 8.4. Since I was able to find it for $50 at Killerapp that
means that you can expect to pay around $60 from a retail store.
That makes it a great deal but I was thinking in the range of
$10 or $15 cheaper? They could not include the on-board pad
with another version. With that said, this is one of the best
keyboards that you can buy for $60, if not the best. For Performance
I am giving this keyboard a rare 9.5. Simply, It's by far the
most comfortable keyboard I’ve ever used. There were keyboards,
but then the Acer Ergo 61 came along and we had “keyboards.”
Hopefully more companies will follow Acer’s lead. Overall I’m
giving this keyboard a 9 point rating. If you have $40 and want
a keyboard, then buy this one. Yes I know many people prefer
Logitech and MS, but after using their keyboards I still prefer
this one. I prefer it over most keyboards because of its wide
layout. If you like a wide keyboard, then this one if for you.
