It's nice, but not out until September, which is too long to wait for
me. I need a new keyboard now. I found this one:
http://www.btc.com.tw/english/2-7-21keyboard.htm#9116urf, which is
bundled with a WinMCE box you can buy from CompUSA. I really liked it
in the store, but couldn't persuade the employee to sell me one
without the computer. I can't find an online US retailer anywhere. I'd
really like to have it in black. If anyone know where to buy it,
please inform!
