Logitech Reveals $60 Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 For Mac

Green's the going thing these days, and if you aren't joining in on the revolution, you're sitting it out by default. Logitech's K750 solar keyboard made an eco-friendly splash when it hit last year for Windows users, but now Mac addicts will be able to enjoy the same board, albeit with Mac-specific key layouts and four exclusive colors. This one's designed to be plug-and-play with OS X, operating on a 2.4GHz wireless frequency (Unifying Receiver, not Bluetooth) and capable of running for three months on a full charge. There are solar cells along the top that recharge the board via direct or ambient light, and there's a Logitech-only concave key-cap design to look forward to as well.



The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in August, for a suggested retail price of $59.99. Pre-orders are open now if your standard Mac keyboard just ain't cutting it any longer.

Logitech Delivers the Power of Light to Mac Users

New Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac is Powered by Light, but Can Operate for up to Three Months in Total Darkness

FREMONT, Calif. — Aug. 17, 2011 — Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) brings the power of light to Mac users with the Logitech® Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac®. With the same award-winning design and feature set as the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750, this newest version – available in multiple colors – makes battery hassles a thing of the past thanks to its onboard solar cells that power the keyboard using ambient light.

“We hear from consumers all the time that they want to see more Mac products from us,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit.  “I’m proud to say we’ve listened, and are excited to offer one of our most innovative keyboards designed specifically for Mac users.”

Available in five colors – four exclusively for Mac users – the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac is powered by light – even indoors. It powers itself with ambient light in the room – there’s no need for direct sunlight – so you’ll never have to hassle with changing batteries. And on a full charge it can work for up to three months in total darkness. Plus, you can download the solar power app that gives you at-a-glance information about battery levels, and even alerts you when you need more light.

With its PVC-free construction and fully recyclable box, this keyboard is designed to help minimize its environmental footprint. A full-size wireless keyboard, the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac includes a number pad and features a layout designed for Mac users, so everything is where you expect it to be. Combining the best of traditional keyboards and laptops with a Logitech-only concave key-cap design, the keyboard lets you enjoy faster, quieter, feel-good typing – hour after hour. With sleek lines and a thin profile, this stylish, streamlined keyboard adds style to your workspace—whether you’ve got a laptop or desktop.

The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac comes with advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity to virtually eliminate delays or dropouts, and a plug-and-forget Unifying receiver that is so small it stays in your laptop, so your keyboard is always ready to use.  .

The standard Mac Keyboard is fine by me,...(I use them on two of my PC's as we speak)...and I wonder if ambient room lighting is good enough to keep this thing powered up all day long?

Edit: I read a little more of the writeup just now and I see that it's ambient light enabled and has a pissed-off battery in it as well.
