It feels amazing.
Without question, the Laptop Pro is the best Bluetooth keyboard you can get for your Mac.
Built from our Quiet Click mechanical keyswitches, they deliver a feel that’s unmatched for comfort — without sacrificing the tactile feedback you need to type really fast.
Wireless + compact.
There are several benefits that come with a compact, wireless keyboard...
It’s narrow enough to fit in your laptop bag, making it easy to take with you.
Hotel room ergonomics.
If you’re working from a less-than-ergonomic hotel desk, you can type with the keyboard in your lap, for extra comfort.
Add a portable stand for your laptop, and you have a great ergonomic solution for work on the road.
Really long battery life.
No expense was spared to make this the best Bluetooth keyboard possible. That includes putting a much bigger battery in it than we had to — 1,600 mAh. That’s 5x to 12x bigger than what’s inside most other wireless keyboards; big enough to last 6 months to a year, on a single charge.
Stays on, stays connected.
Other wireless keyboards will often power down and disconnect to preserve battery life — leaving you waiting, each time they reconnect.
With its BIG battery, the Laptop Pro doesn’t need to do that. It stays on, and stays connected.
This simple luxury, not having to worry about batteries, makes the Laptop Pro feel more like a wired keyboard.
USB Charging Ports.
The USB ports on the Laptop Pro let you do two things...
1) Charge the keyboard.
2) Charge up to 2 other devices, while you’re charging
2) the keyboard.
To charge only the keyboard, a USB port on your computer provides sufficient power (500mA or 2.5W). It takes up to 5 hours for a complete charge.
For charging multiple devices, you need more power. Apple’s 5W USB Power Adaptor gives you enough power to charge one extra device. Apple’s 12W USB Power Adaptor or a generic iPad charger provide more than enough power to charge 2 extra devices through the keyboard.
Note: The USB ports are for charging only. Plugging a flash drive or mouse into them will have no effect.
Mechanical keyboards offer the best performance, but they’re noisy — too noisy to use in most offices, or around other people. This is the first one that’s quiet. Over two years in the making, it’s the only mechanical keyboard that keeps both your fingers and your co-workers happy.
Click to compare.
How quiet is it? The Laptop Pro is no louder than a regular (non-mechanical) keyboard. Your co-workers probably won’t even be able to tell that you have one.
To hear the difference, we made sample recordings of the Laptop Pro plus three other mechanical keyboards — our award-winning Tactile Pro, a Cherry Blue switch keyboard, and a Cherry Brown switch keyboard. Simply click (or tap) to play/pause. Adjust your speaker volume (if necessary).
A modern Apple Extended Keyboard II.
If you’re a fan of the legendary Apple Extended Keyboard II, the Laptop Pro is for you. It was the inspiration for our design, and you can feel that heritage in every keystroke.
Mac-friendly function keys.
Just like an Apple keyboard, the Laptop Pro’s function keys let you control screen brightness, volume, iTunes, and more.
There’s even an Fn key, that lets you momentarily change the function keys back to their traditional duties, when you need them.
Also connects to iPad & Android tablets,
PCs, and other Bluetooth devices.
We designed the keyboard to connect wirelessly to your Mac, but it’s actually a standard Bluetooth connection, so it’ll work with any device that supports Bluetooth keyboards.
That includes... Macs, PCs, the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, Android 3.0+ smartphones and tablets, Samsung Galaxy Tab, BlackBerry PlayBook, and many more.
When connected to a PC, the position of the Alt and Win keys are swapped.
™ € £ © are easy to find.
Extra handy (but hard to remember) symbols are printed right on the keys. Simply hold down the Option key for the bottom-right characters, or Shift-Option for top-right characters.
Laser etched keys.
All those symbols are handy, but what happens when they wear off? They won’t. They’re laser etched — burned into the keys with a laser — so they’ll never wear off.
The latest trend in keyboards is to have very flat & wide keys, with little or no space between them. You see this a lot on laptops and netbooks. While they look great, they can also be a little tricky to type on. The flatness makes it very easy to slide out of home row and lose your bearings.
The Laptop Pro bucks this trend. It has traditional sculpted keytops, curved to fit your fingertips, and keep you from sliding out of home position.
No ghost in this machine.
Most keyboards allow only a few keys to be pressed at once, so they can’t keep up with very fast typists. The result is called ghosting — letters missing from what you actually typed, or additional letters that you didn’t type.
The Laptop Pro has special Anti-Ghosting Circuitry (also called n-key rollover) to eliminate these problems. You can type as fast as you’re able; the Laptop Pro will keep up.
