I literally just put a new wireless keyboard on my shopping list as I shuffle around some of the equipment in my home office and get ready to donate the old stuff (no e-waste here!). Lo and behold, Logitech has come out with the Macintosh edition of the wireless solar keyboard that I wrote about a few weeks back and coveted.
Like its PC-focused sibling, the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 for Mac uses onboard solar cells to self-power using either sunlight or ambient light. No more batteries. On a full charge, it can work up to three months in total darkness. It connects via a 2.4 gigahertz wireless Unifying receiver.
The keyboard is shipping in the United States and Europe. It carries a suggested retail price of $59.99 and it comes in five colors: black (pictured), white, blue, green and pink.
