Default Optimus Maximus keyboard in 15 days

Well it's been quite some time waiting for it but it looks like you can finally buy one.......... if you have very deep pockets that is. The price tag is a measly $1500 US

What's the deal? Are there actually little LCD screens on each key that change depending on the application?

When you build a product you have to sell it to make a profit. If they were advertised at $200-400 a pop they'd be taking huge profit losses.
