It's $600 because of what - you can use one hand Well, my keyboard was something like $100, should this one-hand keyboard only be $50

How is that a one-handed keyboard? It looks just like a normal keyboard to me.

Also, if you think $600 is expensive, how about $1600? ThinkGeek :: Optimus Maximus Keyboard

The Maximus is built up of LED screens. The "One-Handed Keyboard" let's you type with onehand by holding the left side of the keyboard.

Nope still useless that way as I don't see that its spill-resistant.

If you were handicapped and your one hand had trouble moving to both sides of the keyboard perhaps, but then I would think you get do almost the same job using software to remap the keyboard.
