Description

The keyboard has an all-aluminium body reminiscent of Apple's wireless aluminium keyboards with a cylindrical back but slightly thicker and with "floating" keys. The back has a kick-stand like the Lenovo Yoga Tab line of tablet computers. The keyboard is however not wireless, sporting a fixed USB cable on the back The cylinder caps are only ornamental. The USB cable and plug is styled similarly to contemporary Apple plugs.

The keys are backlit with white LEDs and the keycaps are double-shot moulded.
