Adesso may not be a household name when it comes to keyboards in general, but they're pretty well known in the realm of atypical, niche boards. The company has a keyboard for almost any need, from field work to HTPC users who'd like a board with an integrated trackpad.

The device is fully compatible with Windows Vista, XP and 2000, as well as Mac OS X, and it's encased in a metallic lining and a piano finish. There's also a variety of multimedia and Internet hotkeys, and the trackpad supports vertical... Read more...
