Logickeyboard has a reputation for beautifully designed products. Color-coded buttons organize shortcuts into categories, helping editors quickly reference important keys. And like the products, themselves, the packaging is also colorfully sleek and simple. This design is reminiscent of another company—Apple. So what do you get when you pair a Logickeyboard with an Apple computer? Nothing short of perfection, that’s what.
The new ALBA keyboard features a built-in chip designed specifically for macOS, making the keyboard pure plug and play on an Apple system. There’s no need for drivers or tedious setups. The nice people over at Logickeyboard are big believers in plug and play, which is why they went to great lengths to build a chip that keeps setup easy.
The team partnered with an ergonomic therapist to determine ALBA’s optimum angle. The solution: a typing angle of 8.5 degrees with leg lift, and 4.5 degrees without leg lift. Concerned about your key travel? Yeah, I don’t know what that is either, but the Logickeyboard team has you covered. According to them, key travel can’t be too big or too small, so the new ALBA offers what they believe is the perfect amount: 4mm.
In addition to precision key travel, the ALBA uses scissor-switch mechanisms, giving each key increased stability during typing. It is specially manufactured for 10,000,000 keystrokes per key. And last but not least, for convenience, the keyboard offers two built-in USB 2.0 ports.
I highly recommend picking up an ALBA keyboard today.
