Macintosh Adjustable Keyboard M1242
Introduced in 1992, the Apple Adjustable Keyboard
was hinged at the top, allowing the user to adjust
the angle between the right and left sides of
the keyboard. The split came between the following
key pairs: 5/6, T/Y, G/H, and B/N. The space
bar floated midway between the two parts. It
also came with contoured plastic wrist rests.
Other innovations included volume buttons and
a record button on the right side of the keyboard
and a completely separate (and optional) auxiliary
keyboard which could be connected to either end
of the main keyboard.
Divided down the middle and hinged at top centre,
the keyboard rotates out from the lower corners
up to 30°, effectively eliminating ulnar
deviation (the angle between the outside edges
of hand and forearm). Function keys, numeric
keypad, and extended arrow keys are offboard
on another module, which lets southpaws place
it to the left of the main board. The standard
bipartite wristrests make the keyboard look right
out of Cronenberg's Naked Lunch, but volume,
mute, and record keys let you muzzle your computer
at the press of a button, which wouldn't be quite
so easy with Clark Nova.
Introduced in 1992. The keys are arranged in
a QWERTZ fashion. Original Price: $320 !
