    Oyoyoy ... The Optimus Keyboard which was believed to cost a mere $1200 will in fact cost $1490 - a hefty price tag for some especially for a keyboard. More good news has been announced: the OLED keys...

    More...

    :eek2: :gape:

    And to think i can assemble a system for that much money that will last me for a year or 2. Heck i can even freaking buy a Laptop that will be more useful than that keyboard.

    I mean who the hell is going to buy it................

    EDIT: Love my new avatar!

    Yeah........also the keyboard is not that appealing.... at least to me because i have seen a logitech keyboard that has a better design.

    Also yeah METAL SLUG Rules............ (try getting for your PSP or Wii.... the game is amazing :D)

    Maybe Macintosh owners will buy it? I'd probably have to be making six figures to consider buying that. Don't suppose it comes in Bluetooth?

    Why? I would buy a brand new PC over that...and have money left to buy a nice keyboard too.

    Seriously, if a keyboard costs over $50, its worthless (IMHFO)

    sigh...cant wait for that projector keyboard laser thing...

    i have given up all hope about it a few months ago when they tried to push the black-and-white version.
    i think its a superb idea, and i would pay extra for it over a normal keyboard, but that price is just insane! what happened to "less than a good mobile phone"???

    I'd rather buy a Logitech diNovo if we're talking high-end keyboards, and THAT'S pushing it.

    You can setup a DAMN nice system for the price...of this keyboard...


    ...keyboard...

    QFT...

    Though yours lights up better than mine... :O

    Really though, I don't see what's so special about it? For $1500 it had better read my mind and translate it into imput signals the pc can interpet... :p

    The idea is fantastic. The price, horrible. But well, it happens with all technologies. Let's see what comes in the next five years :)
