Not so edgy this time around.
We’ve already had the Logitech diNovo Edge Mac Edition but if that was too, well, edgy, for you fear not for there is an option. The diNovo Keyboard, as it is called, lacks some of the features and elegance of its Edge counterpart but comes in at a lower price to compensate. Horses for courses, as the saying goes.
Unsurprisingly for a Mac-centric keyboard, there’s a bunch of dedicated shortcut keys for launching applications such as iTunes, Safari and iChat. There’s also hotkeys for important MacOS functions such as Exposé, Dashboard and Quicklook, among others.
Apparently the keyboard also boasts “the classic diNovo design language” whatever that means in ‘real’ English. Admittedly the diNovo isn’t unattractively designed, brushed aluminium palm-wrest and all, but I wouldn’t say any language was involved.
Logitech claims a three year battery life, which seems a tad optimistic from a wireless keyboard, but even if it manages a third of that I can’t see any owner complaining. There’s no UK pricing as yet, but it seems a safe bet the diNovo will sit pretty close to its Windows-oriented counterpart which sits at around £70.
