Called the R*Keyboard, it measures less than 15 1/4 inches wide by 5.5 inches deep, and is less than 1 5/8 inches high. The trackpad is made by GlidePoint, according to Marathon. It supports clicking and double-clicking, and also has an area that works as a right-click for two-button mouse compatible applications.
The R*Keyboard also features function keys, labeled F1 through F15, cursor keys, an extra function key if you have to use it with a PC, and LEDs for Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Power.
The keyboard sports a 55 inch long USB cable and also has a pass-through port if you have to hook another USB device up to it. It has fold-out feet for height adjustment, and has keyhole slots for fixed mounting.
The R*Keyboard is available for US$100 from Marathon’s e-store. It’s also available bundled with the R*Key, a heavy duty rackmount keyboard drawer, for $375.
