The Happy Hacking Keyboard comes in two main versions, the standard and the professional. The HHK is a compact keyboard designed to minimise the amount of stretching around a keyboard that the typist has to do. It is aimed mainly at programmers and geeks, hence the name. But it would be a great keyboard for anyone with limited space on their desk, who has smaller hand or just wants a minimalist but high quality keyboard. I’m going to be focusing more on the professional model, mainly because I like it more. But in a vague kind of order I’m going to discuss the standard model first.
The standard model has been through two incarnations to the best of my knowledge. The original HHK and the HHK Lite II. The HHK is aimed squarely at *nix users and includes cables for various models of unix workstation. The HHK Lite 2 is more for PC and Mac users. It has a few keys that are found on a Mac keyboard and sports a few USB ports. It is the cheapest model in the range.
I’m going to post this up and then put up a post in a while about the pro model. I’ll then merge the two posts probably.
