It was slightly more than a month ago that Metadot revealed the Das Keyboard 4C mechanical keyboard, and that was certainly a treat for those who have been on the lookout for a decent keyboard option for a long time. This time, however, it would be Mac users who will benefit, with the most significant keyboard update for Mac users since the Model S arriving in the form of the Das Keyboard 4 Professional for Mac.
From this moment onward, Mac OS power-users, designers, editors, coders, gamers, musicians and enthusiasts – all of them, will be able to experience the best-in-class typing experience that is available on the market, as this bad boy will be able to deliver ultimate speed, performance, style and durability in a single package. The Das Keyboard 4 Professional for Mac has been meticulously engineered by using a refined vibration-less enclosure, hex screws, cutting-edge look and oversized HiFi-inspired volume knob so that the entire desktop experience can be enhanced, simultaneously unleashing personal computing potential unlike what has been seen before.
There is no detail that is deemed to be too small, as the Das Keyboard 4 Professional for Mac has been expertly crafted and comes fully equipped with an array of premium features. For instance, the gold-plated mechanical switches will be able to offer more accurate tactile and audible feedback as opposed to standard keyboards, and at the same time, create a distinct, satisfying click with each and every keystroke.
There is also a new anodized aluminum top panel that improves durability, where it shows off a professional, contemporary look and feel on any surface. The presence of an over-sized volume knob with dedicated media and function controls will pave the way for fast and easy audio adjustments and access to Mission Control, Launchpad and display settings, all without the need to go through and memorize tedious keyboard shortcuts.
There is also a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 hub which delivers the industry’s first two-port 5Gb/s hub, letting you breeze through your file transfers in double quick time. Expect to fork out $175 for the Das Keyboard 4 for Mac if you’re interested.
