    Even though that's a prototype, there isn't anything unusual about it. It looks just like the Apple Keyboards sold in the early to mid 2000's.

    I thought the USB ports were on the sides of the keyboards, not the rear by the wire?

    On the plastic white ones like that, they are on the back. On the newer aluminum ones, they are on the sides. And on the very old original USB keyboards, they are on the sides.

    An aluminum keyboard prototype ended recently for around $300, if I remember correctly. I remember watching the auction end, it blew my mind that someone would pay $300 for a keyboard. I guess some people have lots of money and nothing to spend it on

    Knew someone would post about my keyboard ;)

    I have a few other internal things, I fear I couldn't sell them though, since I'm already risking this..
