Hey, looks nice, but at a first glance I miss a trackpoint (which
I personally prefer over a glidepad) and a third mouse button (which
is essential). Furthermore, the keyboard seems to have those
unfriendly MICROS~1 advertising keys. :-)

Specifications look very well, so it may be well to say that such
a device can be in use for several years. It's intended to run
PC-BSD 1.x / FreeBSD 6.x, so there's a good chance that it will
work with a 7.x FreeBSD, too.

But too expensive (in my opinion)...
