Logitech has announced the Logitech diNovo Edge Mac Edition, the newest addition to Logitech’s line of diNovo keyboards and the first diNovo keyboard specially designed for the Mac.
“We’re truly delighted to offer discerning Mac enthusiasts our highest quality in keyboard design and performance,” said Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing for Logitech’s keyboards and desktops. “From the piano-black finish to its built-in TouchDisc™ touch pad, the diNovo Edge can make it a pleasure for you to type, control music or launch your favorite applications.”
The newest diNovo keyboard is exceptionally thin (½ inch or 11.05 mm) with a high-gloss, semi-translucent Plexiglas frame, sharp angles and soft-orange backlighting. The aluminum palm rest with anodized-silver finish looks good with any Mac computer, including the iMac and the MacBook Pro.
In addition to its design, the diNovo Edge, Mac Edition features optimized Mac keys for one-touch access to Mail, Safari and iTunes, as well as many other Mac-specific applications. The new Logitech keyboard even offers a Power button that turns your Mac computer on and off, while the TouchDisc allows you to scroll and navigate from your keyboard.
Moving a finger up and down or across the disc moves the cursor on the computer screen, and moving the finger in a circular motion around the perimeter of the TouchDisc enables you to scroll horizontally and vertically through documents.
The Logitech Control Center software installation is required for some features.
The new Logitech keyboard features the Logitech PerfectStroke key system, designed to create longer key travel – 3.2 mm compared to 2.2 mm – than that of typical notebook keyboards, which means that the distance fingers have to travel to activate a key is optimized for comfort.
An included charging base eliminates the hassle of changing batteries, with a four-hour charge giving up to one month of battery life. A 10-minute power charge provides one day of use.
The Logitech diNovo Edge, Mac Edition cordless keyboard is expected to be available in the U.S. beginning this month. The suggested retail price in the U.S. is US$159.99.
