The Kenesis Advantage 2 has a steep learning curve, as well as a steep price, but both are worth it for the investment in comfort and convenience, especially for programmers. Each half of the QWERTY keyboard is nestled into a concave niche and tented 20 degrees for a more natural wrist and forearm position. The thumb clusters move the tab, backspace, and enter keys away from the weaker pinky positions to stronger thumb reach to further reduce strain.
It features Cherry MX Brown switches for typing accuracy and durability, the ability to re-map keys for custom layouts, on-the-fly macro recording, and Dvorak layout options. It also is compatible with Windows, Mac, Chrome, and Linux operating systems; just plug in the keyboard and start typing.
