The keyboard seems, to me, a huge step forward in terms of everyday value. What Do I mean? Well, work on the white Apple Keyboard for 3 years and see for yourself. Apart from the usual hand-grease thatīs of course also going to show up on the new modelīs keys (although I figure itīs easier to wipe it off since the keys are not as high and the space between them is not as deep), thereīs flocks of dust gathering in the case, and since the case is so beautifully transparent, one can clearly see the dirt piling up inside. Plus, it contrasts so well on white... I took the keys off my Apple Keyboard to get it clean twice in 3 years, and that certainly is not going to happen on the new keyboard. As for the membrane issue one comment brought up here: I might be totally wrong, but werenīt all Apple keyboards since the fantastic beige Pro model (ADB Apple Extended Keyboard II, that one was amazing and definately was NOT membrane) membrane ones? And arenīt most of them still working, and mor or less fine to type on? I think the membrane/switch controversy is overrated. Correct me if Iīm wrong.
