In addition, the keyboard has remained unchanged, with a weight of 1700 grams, that is for a big part due to the 3 mm thick aluminum top. It’s a full-size keyboard, with five macro keys, multimedia keys at the top right and a removable smartphone standard. There is also a two-pointer USB hub, as well as audio pass-through.
