New software warrants new hardware. We saw a few fresh Macs pop up alongside Lion last week, but as Apple is wont to do, it also quietly revved an existing product without even mentioning it. In this case, it was Wireless Keyboard ($69). Since it first launched, Apple’s typer has been among the best, and now it’s just a bit better.
As always, the keys are perfectly sized and have an awesome clickiness to them. These days, Wireless Keyboard runs on two AA batteries, and they last for months. Toss in the cells from Apple’s Battery Charger and your golden. This new version appears to be exactly the same, but if you look closely at the top row you’ll spot the difference. Mission Control and Launchpad keys have replaced those for Exposé and Dashboard. Yes it’s a subtle change, but it just goes to show Apple’s attention to detail.
