I work on a laptop every day. Granted it’s hooked up to an Apple Cinema Display and an Apple Keyboard, but I purposely got the new Apple Keyboard that emulates the keys found in the newer MacBooks and MacBook Air (which for sake of disclosure is the laptop I work on).

To the chagrin of wrists and at risk of carpal tunnel syndrome I continue to type on these slightly numbed devices, it’s what I feel comfortable on (despite it’s health risks).

While catching up on some ‘net reading I came across this Kensington Ci70 Keyboard and have to say it’s something I’m going to buy. The fact that it’s not only the type of keyboard I love to work on, has great design and also offers additional media and connectivity features only sweetens the deal. Now that it’s finally available in oh so smooth black I’m getting it. [via]
