Goldtouch Keyboard for Mac
Key Ovation today unveiled one of the few true ergonomic keyboards designed specifically for Mac users. The Goldtouch for Mac splits the keyboard layout into two distinct halves that can change their angle by 30 degrees in either direction to get a comfortable fit. All features specific to Mac keyboards are present, including Command and Option keys, an eject key, and volume controls. Key Ovation boasts that the quality of the keyboard is such that Apple itself has used the earlier, generalized version of the keyboard for its workers. "That was tremendous validation for the keyboard," says Key Ovation General Manager Stephanie Gilbert. The Goldtouch for Mac is now available for $140 and can be accompanied by a stand-alone keyboard, wrist rest, or vertically-oriented mouse.
