Product Shot 2 Like its predecessor, the Professional 2 keyboard features 60 capacitive tactile key switches that replace lesser used keys with key combinations. There are also audio control keys for use on a Macintosh only. Note that many keys have been moved from their typical QWERTY position. For instance, the Backspace key now lies above the Enter key. Plus there are no cursor keys, though navigation can be had by hitting the Function (Fn) key and then the appropriate letter key.

zabouti: #happy_hacking_professional_2 The reason that I have about a half dozen of these is that they have the control key where it belongs for us old unix hackers who use vim and the command-line. It's a wonderful keyboard. Feb 15, 11
