REVIEW: Logitech MX Keys Wireless Illuminated Keyboard

Logitech has always been at the forefront in developing excellent keyboards for the Mac, and their newest, the MX Keys Wireless Illuminated Keyboard is no exception.  For $99.99 you get a lot of features.  

Although this keyboard is multi-platform, it has several Mac/Windows keys that perform functions specific for that particular platform.  For example, check out the Cmd/Alt or Opt/Start keys.

The MX Keys keyboard is heavier than its Apple competitor, the Magic Keyboard With Numeric Keypad. The Apple one weighs .5 lbs. while the Logitech weighs 1.8 lbs.  The difference is that it has a metal plate under the keys that make the keyboard more stable on your desktop.
