Default Hands-on With Optimus Maximus

Hands-on With Optimus Maximus

Finally, someone has gotten a little hands-on time with the Optimus Maximus. Is this thing worth the crazy cash they are asking for it? You might be surprised. Head on over to Engadget for the rundown and check out all the pictures while you are there.

The legendary Optimus Maximus is chilling out at the Wired Store in SoHo as of this week, so we dropped by to snap a few pictures. We've gotta say we're pretty impressed, the build seems as solid as a rock, the screens are crazy bright and all the glossy keys catch the light just right.

I just don't really understand - if that price is really for pros only (graphic, video, music) - than why would they want it anyway? They're supposed to know all the shortkeys already. That's why they're pros.

I mean - it's a bit stupid to sell $1,500 keyboard to the guy who works (exmpl.) with Ps and AfterEffects and Maya for 10 years and tell him - well, BUT YOU CAN SEE ALL THE SHORTKEYS. Lol.

its a very simple marketing ploy. overprice something unique stupidly high so its more sought after.
