Giving the new Apple keyboard a lift

I have (and love) the Logitech DiNovo Edge keyboard. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it sits a little too low/flat on my desktop. When I saw the new Apple Aluminum keyboard, it looked amazing, but even lower than the DiNovo. Apparently it is. This user gave his Apple board a needed lift by gluing on a pair of Leviton Blank QuickPort Inserts and some LRBs (little rubber feet).

    Whaa? Needed lift? One of the things I love most about this keyboard is its low profile!

    Yeah, I should have had said “for some.” I know that people have different typing styles, different desk heights, etc. On MY desk, for MY style, a wafer-thin board definitely isn’t that comfortable. YMMV.

    Ergonomically speaking, tilting your keyboard up at the back is a really bad idea.
