It is often called "Filco Skeleton", where "Skeleton" (スケルトン) is a common description of clear plastic in Japanese.
Other versions exist of this, or a very similar keyboard but little is known about them.
- Versions with transparent pink or blue keys have been reported
- All opaque white plastic has also been spotted.
- The transparent version did also exist in a PS/2 version for Windows PCs with PC layout with Windows keys and a nav column instead of blanks in-between the Return key and numeric keypad.
- A silver-metallised limited edition. Supposedly sold exclusively by Akihabara Mac Academy.
The keyboard features a highly prominent colour Mac OS logo under the escape and F1 keys, followed by the Filco logo. The command keys also bear an outlined Mac OS logo together with the command symbol, but not the Apple logo.
