MX-Board 3.0 Continued
The caps themselves are molded in black. They all have the same center posts, but here it is easy to see how shallow the caps really are. There is enough room, however, to add a set of o-rings if desired and still not affect the keyboard's functionality.
On the back edge of the keyboard, where it has been bumped out to allow room for the name at the top, we find the Mini B 5-pin connection that will accept the cable that we found in the box. The little box next to it is actually a tab from the top half locking into the lower frame.
Under the MX-Board 3.0, we find plugs in the screw holes, a large sticker in the middle, and even the Cherry name and logo gets pressed into the design. You can also see triangular indents on either side; these are for the optional "feet".
Near the front edge, the keyboard offers a pair of feet like this one. It's just a small rectangular rubber pad to grip onto the table, but we also see holes to add a wrist rest, and you can buy a Cherry Palmrest separately if one is desired.
At the back edge, there is a set of adjustable legs that pop up to the sides. This means sliding the keyboard back will not collapse them. There was also supposed to be a set of rubber covers to add to these feet to increase grip, but they were nowhere to be found in the box.
Jumping ahead into the goodies we got with the board, we added the red rubber "feet". These will work well if the keyboard is left flat on the desk, but it also works great to keep the board from sliding around on your lap.
