Full metal keyboard, part deux

Jet-black, ultra-thin and backlit keys

It's Valentine's Day, so we'll take this opportunity to declare our affection for all things metal and shiny (on the desktop, anyway). Just as we pined away for the aluminum Onkyo hardware barely a week ago, we are similarly taken with this Speed Link keyboard made of the same material.

Gizmodo rightly questions the practicality of this item, especially calling out its "compact" key arrangement. But we're a superficial lot here at Crave, and our heads are easily turned by a pretty peripheral--especially one that's ultra-thin with a jet-black metal finish and backlit LED keys. Plus, what's $97 for a little guilty pleasure? We really have to do something about this midlife crisis.
