They also comes with a Mac version (colored white). Buy at amazon Though, i think it's identical to the PC Black version except the {❖ Window, Alt} keys are swapped to be {Opt, ⌘ command}. Either version, this keyboard does not require any extra driver software. Just plug and play. Nice thing is that it has {Copy, Cut, Paste}, keys on the left.

They offer several stands, each with a fancy name. The price varies from $25 to $200. Without stand is called “Solo”.

Not sure what keyswitch mechanism it is using exactly, but supposedly a better switch than rubber dome. On their site, it says it's tactile but quiet. [see Keyboard Key Switch Mechanisms]
