    I presently own a Das Model S. I need to replace it for a backlit keyboard or one that can be used in the dark. If the Das could do this, it would be perfect.
    In addition, I want a keyboard with a numeric section and USB.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I use a Code 87 by WASD with backlighting and enjoy it. I got it on Amazon for $145.00 back when I bought it.

    Thanks.
    I took a look earlier and didn't see any WASD keyboards for Mac and with separate numeric keys. Did I miss it?

    You can get it with the numpad. Look at the Code 104 models.

    For Mac specific, the keyboards come with a blank key that is by default between the ctrl and alt keys on both sides of the space bar. You can move those blank ones to be directly next to the space bar and then flip the pins on the underside of the keyboard to enable Mac mode. The user guide will instruct you on the PINs to switch. They are very easy to toggle.
