Wireless Keyboard

Wires are a hassle. They clutter your desk, leaving less room for the rest of your junk. So, if wire management is something you struggle at, it may be time to buy an Apple wireless keyboard for your Mac.

The easy-to-install keyboard follows in the beautiful designs of the other products of the late, great Steve Jobs. It is small, doesn’t waste any space and will be familiar to anyone who has been on a Mac in the past decade. The keys type just like a Macbook’s, and the bar on the back raises the board up enough to stave off carpel tunnel syndrome for a while. While there is no backward delete key, a pet-peeve of a Windows-to-Mac convert, it is a minor inconvenience for the keyboard’s elegance and convenience.

If you are using the keyboard for an iMac, it would be a good idea to purchase The Magic Bar by Mobee. It is a USB charger that you slide the keyboard into when it is low on batteries. It will save you the hassle of batteries, but at the expense of introducing wires back to your workstation. Furthermore, the bar makes a touch typist sound like a air-soft machine gun compared to when not in use. But for those who are opposed to batteries and are willing to stash away the charger to the back of the desk, it is a smart buy.

With the holiday season approaching, both the keyboard and the charger will make a great gift or self-indulgence for the casual Mac-lover.
