It's my favorite keyboard of all time. Best keyboard I have ever used. The "flatness" of the keyboard, coupled with the minimalist approach to the raised keys, makes it really fast for touch typists. Solid aluminum construction is a bonus. The raised part of the keyboard, in the back housing the USB ports, provides just enough of an angle to make typing comfortable from a desk. I hope they never change the fundamental design and layout of this keyboard. If it is updated, I hope the revisions are minimal, i.e. backlighting the keys or improving the keyboard's life.
