AZIO RETRO CLAS­SIC: BACK­LIT ME­CHAN­I­CAL KEY­BOARD OF­FERS VIN­TAGE STYLE

Macworld (USA) - - Macuser - BY J.R. BOOKWALTER

My first type­writer was grandma’s old 1933 Royal Model 10-S, and those vin­tage keys spit out thou­sands of pages dur­ing my for­ma­tive teenage years be­fore the ar­rival of word pro­ces­sors. I still miss the firm, sat­is­fy­ing snap of metal keys, which I’ve never been able to repli­cate on Mac key­boards.

Leave it to Azio, a com­pany known for sturdy me­chan­i­cal key­boards aimed at gamers and hard­core typ­ists, to come up with the next best thing. The Retro Clas­sic ( go.mac­world.com/rtcl; $190, avail­able on Ama­zon, go.mac­world.com/azam) com­bines mod­ern tech­nol­ogy with vin­tage good looks in a new line of lux­ury key­boards that of­fer the same type of cir­cu­lar keys I grew up with.
