We really don't like posting about the "Optimus Maximus" keyboard. There, we said it. Despite our admitted , the over this one got out of hand long ago.
Still, we aim to please here at Crave. So even though we've resisted posting every incremental detail about this Russian-made peripheral, we feel obligated to pass along this report that the Op-Max can be had for much less than the original $1,564 price--$462.27 to be exact, according to Gizmodo.
The difference in functionality is more than cosmetic, however: Instead of 113 programmable keys, this stripped-down version has only one "active button," the space bar. You can apparently get 10 smart keys for more than twice the cost of the bargain model, at $1,000. (We're not sure how that equation works, but we flunked math.) That keyless "" keyboard is looking better all the time.
