    Is there anything ridiculously special about this keyboard that can justify its price tag? I suppose it does look pretty and has a potentially cool-looking volume controller, but other than that...

    ...but at least it makes the Apple keyboards look less expensive. :D

    the circle is a trackpad, and it also has volume controller. logitech is known for making feature-packed products like the MX revolution with loads of custom buttons and a battery indicator.

    If it had (or offered) a number pad, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    But it. does have delete key which the apple wireless doesn't and trackpad for when I'm ultra lazy.

    Also noticed its cheaper than the PC version which must be a first.

    the only thing is that it doesnt have a command key...
    instead it has normal pc keys

    but its completely compatible with macs

    $160? Not for a keyboard (I know, it has a trackpad too). I think I would almost rather just get Apple's BT keyboard, even though I'm not a fan of those either. I would probably rather just run a couple of hideous USB extension cables and a wired keyboard. Or a cheap BT PC keyboard.

    I have the diNovo edge for PC and I freaking love it. Everyone made fun of me a year ago for buying a $200 keyboard but I type a ton and I type very heavy and I usually blow through a keyboard every 3 months. This thing is really durable. It took a month of typing before I started to see wear on the keys (trust me thats REALLY good for me) the keys are extremely responsive, the connection is 100% all the time, and the battery life is great. I only have to recharge this thing about once a month. Yes it is 100% compatible with mac too cause I have my mac and pc on a kvm switch and switch between the two all the time. The only downside is the lack of a num pad but I have an external num pad just for those purposes. No buyers remorse whatsoever here.

    It does not appear to have been released yet. The info page on Logitech's site posted earlier ( http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/keyboards/keyboard/devices/4429&cl=us,en ) has a "Notify Me" button in the place that the "Buy Now" button usually is on Logitech product pages for buying directly from their store.

    When it's available for significantly less via Amazon, etc, I'd seriously consider one... although I would need a new black and Aluminum iMac to go with it.... Hmmm.... *evil twiddle*

    I use one with a PC at work for our security system and it is fantastic. We have a NEC 46" monitor that displays our cameras and I can be 25 feet away from the PC that is connected to this keyboard (so I can stand in front of the display) using the diNovo without a glitch. The track pad works very well.
