macworld said the keys were mushy, so probably some type of membrane keyboard but the way the keyboard changes angle seems to be well thought out and easy to do

this vid shows how easy it is to setup which i thought was neat, too bad about key quality though

edit: skip to the end of video as the guy will give a massive lecture before showing you the keyboard

I don't know if this is any use to you djones, but here's an eBay seller that'll ship a black Goldtouch to anywhere in the world...

One came up on ebayUK a couple of months ago for about 25 but when I looked around there were several people who's had problems with keys sticking.

Yep, its standard membrane switches. On the soft side. I don't like them because they don't have any wrist supports. They're good for people who are really anal about keeping their wrists in the air while typing.

I'm with you there, Puntium. I've jacked up the nearest edge of my Logitech ergo k/b so that it's easier to rest my wrists on the wrist support WHILE I type!:D
