Type in the Dark with an Illuminated Keyboard!
One of the biggest style statements you can make with your computer is by installing illumination within the case and around air inlets and fans, etc.
But if you don’t fancy getting your fingers dirty, why not buy an illuminated keyboard? Such devices – now available as wireless – look great, complement both dull and brightly-lit towers, and can be used to type in the dark (although for optical health reasons this isn’t particularly advisable).
However, don’t worry. Our selection of the top illuminated wireless keyboards will give you plenty to think about!
