Two new iPad mini keyboard cases from Zagg today: A super-thin magnetic cover and a thicker stick-on “folio” case, similar to the Pro Plus case for the regular-sized iPad only with a top cover too. And both, amazingly, are backlit. For me, it’s a shootout between Zagg and Logitech when it comes to choosing the best iPad keyboards. I remain unconvinced by either of their offerings for the iPad mini, though, as they’re just [Read More…]
Moshi’s Luna backlit Mac keyboard is a weird device. It’s a desktop device through-and-through, connecting via USB, but doesn’t have any USB ports itself – one of the major advantage of using a wired keyboard.

The short form: Zagg’s Pro Plus has got to be the best compact iPad keyboard I have used (and I have used a lot). It is also backlit, incredibly light and doubles as an iPad case.

This great reader submitted setup comes from recent Mac switcher Brian D and features an iMac 27? that is backlit with some Ikea LED strip lighting, an iPad 2, and an external 18?(?) display atop the iPads box. All of the screens are running the classic Flip clock screensaver, Fliqlo, which is one of my personal favorites. Elsewhere you’ll spot an iPhone, a retro cell phone, Apple’s classic wireless [Read More…]
Apple’s latest lineup of MacBook Air ultraportables just hit the Apple online store, and as expected, these babies are packing Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge Core i5 and i7 processors and the company’s high-speed Thunderbolt technology, and backlit keyboards as standard. All models pack a new Intel 3000 graphics processor and now feature a backlit keyboard like that in the MacBook Pros. Prices start at $ 949 — $ 50 less than [Read More…]
This week is expected to witness the release of new MackBook Airs and Mac OS X Lion. There are expectations that Backlit Keyboard might return to the MackBook Air. Photo Via | flickr With the release of new models later this month, Apple is set to reinstate a feature to its MacBook Airs that went missing when the company overhauled the ultra-thin notebooks into more cost-affordable products late last year, AppleInsider has learned.
