I really like that keyboard. Too bad it's not mechanical. The price on Amazon is $150. No thanks. That's WAY overpriced. And the combo (with trackball - who TF uses a trackball anymore?) is not available. I'll stick with my G513. It would be really cool to see logitech do an ergo mechanical version though. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
