Eddy Winner: Logitech diNovo Edge Mac Edition keyboard
By Dan Frakes
People have been waiting for a Mac-compatible version of Logitech’s acclaimed diNovo Edge keyboard since the Windows model was released back in 2006. They finally got it in 2008, and the diNovo Edge Mac Edition () was worth the wait.
While the polished-Plexiglass body and aluminum wrist rest look great, the keyboard’s features are what really set it apart. Logitech started with great-feeling, properly arranged keys, and then it added a slew of Mac-specific functions, dedicated iTunes-playback buttons, a built-in trackpad for mouse control and scrolling, a touch-sensitive volume slider, and backlit amber status indicators. Throw in a rechargeable battery and charging dock, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and useful (and stable) customization software, and you’ve got the complete package (except for a numeric keypad).
The diNovo Edge Mac Edition is the new standard in Mac keyboards, and get this: While it’s certainly pricey, it costs $20 less than the Windows version. When’s the last time that happened?
