If anyone has this dell keyboard, can you tell me the length of it? I figure it's probably around 18 inches, but I need to know for sure.


Thanks!

ummm... maybe I'm missing something, but all I see is a wt integral logo?

Is that a model of a dell keyboard, or is it just the wrong image?

So mac-fanboism now extends to saying how butt ugly Dell keyboards are because they are 18 inches? :confused:

I own a Tactile Pro that is very much like an original Apple keyboard and I do appreciate the size...

Post edited to show the image correctly, sorry about that, that's what I get for being lazy and hotlinking it.

This is DELL's "compact" keyboard. I don't think the "Mac fanboy" comment was directed at me, if so, I don't hate DELL's keyboards, I'm getting this one pictured here.

I just need to know the length of it so I know if it will fit where I want to put it.

Thanks!

Perfect! Thanks guys, and yeah they're sweet keyboards, I like the Apple ones better, but these are nice for the price.

that keyboard is on all of the dells at my school, and i actually really like it. a bit noisy, but has a great feel IMHO. still like my apple BT a lot more, though.

I'll be honest...it's not that bad of a keyboard. We have them all over the place where I work and they are decent enough for me to use...

Sorry, my mistake. I definitely missed the sarcasm in your initial post - sometimes it's hard to tell online. Next time throw in a smilie.. ;)

Frankly I can't figure out what dark orifice generik pulled that one from.

Much better.


Oh, and don't worry. It wasn't very good to start with.

I thought that one was particularly tenuous, even for him. :p
