Apple also moved the 'bluetooth antenna' to the middle.Hi, Kenneth. I was aware of the move to 2 AA batteries. The internal change that makes this possible is a more efficient power management, which supposedly powers the keyboard when you hit a key. What I'm wondering is if that changes creates any additional lag detectable when using the keyboard compared to the older model, or if the keyboard *feels* any different in any other way.

There's a design clash with my matt white keys on the keyboard and the glossy white of the mouse. Any change to the keyboard? I'd certainly welcome the white keys not getting dirty so quick.
