The Kinesis Advantage is the original mechanical ergonomic keyboard. Kinesis utilizes Cherry MX Brown switches and top-of-the-line internals in their flagship Advantage to maximize comfort and productivity for the power user. One look at the Advantage confirms that this isn’t your grandmother’s keyboard.
Note: Advantage keyboards are not compatible with most Windows 7 computers which have USB 3.0 ports, even if they also have USB 2.0. This problem doesn’t happen with other operating systems, such as Windows 8, Mac & Linux. This drop is limited to 150 units.
Additional Note: At checkout you have an option to choose between the Advantage in QWERTY, Advantage in QWERTY/DVORAK (+$25), and Advantage LF in Cherry MX Reds (+$25). Also, there is a PS/2 conversion kit (+$25) available as an add-on.
The Advantage features unique concave key wells with a vertical, non-staggered key layout designed to reduce finger extension. Separating the key wells in this fashion keeps your wrists at shoulder width where they are most comfortable. Built-in palm rests eliminate wrist-extension and self-adhesive lycra pads can be installed to provide additional comfort. Frequently used editing keys such as Space, Enter, Backspace, Alt, and Control have been relocated to convenient thumb “clusters" to reduce the workload for your weakest fingers, the pinkies. The end result is a keyboard that works in harmony with your body.
There is more to the Advantage than just a sleek ergonomic design. Customize the Advantage to your exact specifications using powerful on-board programming. Remap individual keys, program macros or switch to Dvorak layout, all without installing any software. Up to 24 long macros can be programmed and stored in the keyboard’s on-board memory and a traditional 10-key is embedded into the right key well which can be accessed with an optional footswitch.
