Any all black apple keyboards in the pipe line?
Why would Apple do that?
With numblock maybe?
Why? Something to match the new Mac Pro.
I hope so because after extended use of the Logitech wireless keyboard I prefer the Logitech. I typed on PC and Mac for 3 years on the Apple Wireless Keyboard, so I'm not without experience on the products.
Professionally, I am Unix systems engineer so I often joke that I am a professional typist. I'm picky about keyboards
I predict apple's next incarnation of the wireless keyboard will be without buttons entirely. It will be all touch sensitive like the iPad and magic mouse. Maybe have the keys appear and light up as you move your hands over it. Just my prediction.
Which logitech? the K811?
I'd like logitech to bring out that windows keyboard with the attached trackpad for Mac.
Id just like for it to not eat through a pair of double AA every week
Yes the K811.
I have one at home, one at work and they both work fine.
Switching between systems at home takes only a second or two.
I have been using these rechargeable Eneloops and they work lout pretty well.
I recharge the K811 and the corresponding trackpad about once a week.
Not particularly inconvenient to do either.
This makes quite a lot of sense. Wouldn't be surprised to see this at all. For now though, I really enjoy the simplistic nature of their current wireless keyboard, especially the small form factor.
If you ever wanted to do an ultimate DIY project you could completely disassemble the keyboard and ship the aluminum frame off to be anodized whatever color you want. It would be a project but i'd imagine the result would look pretty sweet.
edit: im not sure if it is possible to completely disassemble a keyboard without damaging it
Do you want wireless, or do you want a number block? Or do you want an all-black keyboard?
If you don't mind the current form factor, and other than the Logitech, the Matias Laptop Pro would be the wireless keyboard to get. And as Weaselboy said, get yourself some eneloop rechargeable batteries.
The number-pad? Matias Quiet Pro. And it doesn't have batteries, either. It would be nice if Matias would upgrade the internals and add a USB 3.0 hub, though.
The only other thing it lacks is some sort of post, because you'll likely want to put a ring on it.
If that's still too silver and you don't mind some louder clickety-clackety action: Das Keyboard Model S Professional for Mac.
Gunmetal anodized aluminum and black keys
If this was wireless and Mac compatible
I'd buy it.
There is this option (looks nice in graphite) but it's a matte or glossy paint finish.
