The best keyboard Apple ever made rises again.The Matias Tactile Pro Keyboard is built from the same premium keyswitch technology that Apple used in its original Apple Extended Keyboard, widely viewed as the best keyboard Apple ever made.Legendary Feel & Speed of Alps mechanical keyswitches.Mac users who crave the feel of Apple's legendary Extended and Extended II keyboards will love the Tactile Pro. Unlike other keyboards made today, each key is built on an individual Alps Mechanical Switch. They feel better, and you'll type faster.Version 3 - modern new look and features.This Tactile Pro model has been completely redesigned to offer the best features of the original Tactile Pro, but with much better fit & finish, and incredible attention to detail.The layout is the same comfortable and familiar one (with Eject and Volume keys) but the case enclosure is completely new - much stronger than before, and much more resistant to crumbs and dust.™ € £ ¥ © are easy to find.The Tactile Pro makes it easy to find ™ € £ ¥ © and other hard to remember symbols - they're all printed right on the keys. Simply hold down the Option key for the bottom-right characters, or Shift-Option for the top-right characters.Laser etched keys.All those symbols are handy, but what happens when they wear off? They won't. They're laser etched - burned into the keys with a laser - so they'll never wear off.Sculpted keytops.The latest trend in keyboards is to have very flat & wide keys, with little or no space between them. You see this a lot on laptops and netbooks. While they look great, they can also be a little tricky to type on. The flatness makes it very easy to slide out of home row and lose your bearings.The Tactile Pro bucks this trend. It has traditional sculpted keytops, curved to fit your fingertips, and keep you from sliding out of home

UPDATE Sept 2014:
So less than two years later after purchase the space key is broken.
Contacted Matias who refuses any support because one year warranty is over. Their advice is to buy a new keyboard.
This is totally unexpected on a expensive mechanical keyboard.
Definitely *NOT* buying anything ever again from Matias and strongly advise you to do the same.
Also, It works perfectly on the PC. The only con I can think of is the keyboard is very heavy, which will deter people looking for a compact/mobile one.
Thanks also the The Keyboard Company who supplied the keyboard on behalf of Amazon. I had a request regarding the shipping method and they responded to my email very quickly confirming that they could use the service I requested. Keyboard arrived a couple of days after placing the order. Can't say better than that.
STRONGLY RECCOMENDED and definitely worth the money.
