I like the Trio Wireless Charging Pad, but why do these manufactures think that adding AirPod indents makes the product better? All it does is limit the usefulness of that spot until eventually, its presence makes the pad obsolete.

It would be cool if that keyboard pictured in the photo was in stock. That looks like a good design that shortens the keyboard but still allows full numpad access and is pretty much exactly what I've been looking for. I'm always sliding my full size Apple keyboard around depending how much space I need for the mouse. I use one of those giant deskpad mousepads but still always manage to run into the right side of my keyboard.

I looked at that keyboard picture and immediately thought it was a BlueTooth keyboard, but alas it is wired. Also, I thought the key labels were kind of too small. Oh well, no sale here.

EDIT: Well, I went to their site and they do also have a BlueTooth and back-lit keyboard. I stand corrected. Now to let some temptation in...

EDIT #2: and of course it's out of stock :-/.

I have the satechi Bluetooth (non backlit) keyboard and mouse at home. Nice looking kit and goes well with my Mac setup.
TBH though, I actually find the dell (gasp) Premier Wireless keyboard and mouse equivalent (which also has wifi) that I have at work just as good looking, connects more reliably (as long as you aren’t using multiple machines, see below) and is much cheaper. The Premier mouse looks cool, and I find fits my hand better. yMMV.

I also have more keyboard errors on the Satechi, a lot of double lettering, which doesn’t happen on the Dell. Switching laptops OTOH works much better on the Satechi. That function often causes problems on the Dell Premier but almost never on Satechi.

The dells don’t have a built in battery either, so pros and cons there.

In most cases I would never go the Dell. It’s funny, I would never buy a Dell computer, but I like its higher spec mouses and keyboards, backpacks and ultrasharp monitors.

I feel the same way about Microsoft, but I used to love their peripherals. Their ergo keyboards used to be fantastic.

Until I’m ready to drop the money on the Apple Keyboard with TouchID, I’m very happy with my Kensington K780 keyboard. Great feel, multi-device support, works with Windows and Mac.
