Of the regular production series, several variations exist, sharing the same G81-1800 model number. Earlier keyboards have 1.5 units keys (Alt/Control) without a gap in the bottom row and a regular 7 units space bar, while newer models come with Windows keys (1 units keys right of the 6 units space bar). The keycaps have been made in several types of plastics (double-shot ABS, Lasered PBT and POM) and in several colour variations. Contemporary keyboards are either completely light grey or black. All G81-1800 have MX Compatible keycaps, although all stabilized keys won't be usable, all of the others are.
