Synaptics prepares its line of ultrathin keyboard

Synaptics, the company that designs an important amount of touchpads on laptops present worldwide and Touch Sensor phones as fashionable as the HTC One X , is released on keyboards with a more than acceptable concept.

The model that has been known by the name of ThinTouch promises to be 50% thinner than the keyboards of competition. This is ideal for manufacturers of ultrabooks, that is precisely who intends to attract.

Among the advantages that we can assume a Keyboard finer ultrabooks we can see a thinner, or have more space for batteries or components we provide new functionality.

Synaptics intends that these keyboards are available for 2013, without specifying what the mount brands or more specifications, such as the number of clicks that will support each key. Vitally important if you want the keyboard lasts.

If there is anything we can state categorically on keyboards (and mice), and if you are someone who works with computers, is that anything goes. A good keyboard is working herramientata a bad keyboard and can lead you to bad positions, muscle problems and considerable performance requested. All that said, we will have to wait out the first prototypes for reviews of its mechanical behavior.
