Like the rest of the componets the keyboard is one of a kind. Its design coming from the Powerbook line meshes well with the head unit. It's compact, functional, and will surely impress your clients visiting your office.
From the genuine Italian leather palm rests, to the removable trackpad, it is the perfect bridge between the computer and the operator.
A second ADB port is available on the keyboard if one wants to add a mouse. As an afterthought it would be nice if the designers had made the trackpad a mouse when removed, unfortunatly it is still just a trackpad in both states.

The bottom shows the cord set in its groove when the trackpad is in its normal position. The filler pad is also visible here.

Unboxing - part 5
Box 4, the final box is also the smallest. It is the keyboard which is held in place by the corners with cardboard.
The borders are painted to match the rest of the computer hardware and has the same black keys found on the Powerbook 3400.
The keyboard lacks the ten key pad but makes up for it with its compact and elegent design. The TAM can be turned on and off by the upper right key.
The removable leather filler pad used when the trackpad is in its removable position.
Unfortunatly the designers didn't make the trackpad a mouse in disguise, that when removed would also be a mouse, something that would be really useful as it is still just a trackpad when removed. But just the same it is a superb design and very functional.
