    Hello,

    I need an ergonomic keyboard (with the split keys) such as the Microsoft (yeah, the devil, I know) Natural 7000 keyboard.

    http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Nat...UZBM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1301891167&sr=8-1

    Is such a thing available in the Philippines? Aside from Apple shops, are there any large-scale computer stores in Manila which might carry something like this? So far all I have seen in the mall of Asia, for example, are a lot of very small stores, but no mega-stores such as you would find in the US.

    ^Try looking for Octagon; it's one of the larger computer stores in Manila. The smaller stores might have what you're looking for, though, so I suggest that you have a peek in them too. You never know.

    I might have seen it in Park Square (memory's all fuzzy). In a small store (since nearly all stores there are small), no less ;)

    I'm also looking for one but I'd prefer the one with the Apple keyboard layout.

    Ergonomic design keyboard with Apple keyboard layout. That would be nice... :) I hope Apple will design one soon.

    then get a Logitech DiNovo Mac Edition keyboard. - This is what I'm using and I can't complain :)

    * perfect stroke technology
    * apple keyboard layout (as the name suggests)
    * slim
    * aluminum palmrest (feels great!)

    Where did you buy it dude? Is it available locally?

    EDIT: Oh it isn't the ergonomic keyboard. Pretty sleek nonetheless.

    I got it from a computer store in HK (@Mongkok) - for about Php 3000+ (converted)

    I doubt it's available locally.

    EDIT: it's not marketed as "ergonomic" but it does not give you stress and strain (which is the main goal of ergonomic stuff)


    ^ I use this for at least 15 hours a day (I work at home) - and as I said, I can't complain :)

    You can order them pretty safely. They are shipped out of California.

    I've been using eBay for years.

    Apple used to make an ergonomic keyboard, it was called the Apple Adjustable Keyboard - too bad it was discontinued a long time ago.
