Logitech Announces DiNovo Edge ‘Mac Edition’

The eminently stylish keyboard you've been waiting for to accompany your fashion accessory of a computer.

Logitech may have taken a while to realise it was just a tad behind the times with its distinct lack of Mac-friendly products, but it seems to be rectifying that problem with all due haste recently. Not only has a Mac-compatible Logitech webcam been released, but it now has a companion in the form of the eminently stylish diNovo Edge Mac Edition.

Changes from the Windows-centric diNovo are, as you might expect, pretty small. In fact aside from changing a few keys to their Mac-specific alternatives (command, option and so forth) the board in otherwise unchanged superficially. Then again, the original diNovo was left little improvement to be desired in that regard anyway.

As before, the keyboard uses Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to a computer but unlike the Windows version, no dongle is supplied – hardly a problem as every Mac sold for the last 4 years or so has had onboard Bluetooth. Logitech claims that a four hour charge of the diNovo should enable an entire month’s unfettered usage, which probably equates a fortnight in real terms, which is hardly bad.

Price wise the diNovo Mac Edition is sitting at about $20 less than the Windows edition, in the US, so we’re probably looking at £5 difference over here. Still, if you have £150-odd to spend on a keyboard, you could do a lot worse.
