For the price, this is an excellent keyboard. The MS keyboard is a great
deal. It's still a QWERTY layout, but it has a built-in wrist-rest and
separates the hands by splitting the keyboard at a fixed angle.

The keyboard comes with Microsoft IntelliType software, which adds some
useful featuers to Windows, but some people report it causes their systems
to crash.

The keyboard includes three new keys which don't really add any
functionality whatsoever. Don't let these keys influence your purchasing
decisions.

(This is a picture of a prototype for the current MS keyboard. This

never has been nor never will be for sale.)
