New Display, New Keyboard

Send Article to a Friend
Director of Technical Services, Baka Industries Inc.

Apple's various CPU divisions had a big day last week, and not to be outdone, the company's peripheral-designing groups are letting the Apple Multiple Scan 15 Display and the AppleDesign Keyboard out into the world. Both products are shipping now, though Apple says the higher education market will get first crack at the monitor.

The Multiple Scan 15 Display is a more affordable addition to Apple's line of multi-resolution monitors, with an Apple Price of $505. It sports a 15-inch flat, square screen, and supports 640 x 480 to 832 x 624 resolutions on Macintoshes (up to 1024 x 768 on PCs). The monitor complies with MPR II electromagnetic emissions standards, and the EPA's EnergyStar conservation guidelines, and includes a tilt-swivel base, stereo speakers, front-panel headphone jack, and a zoom control that enlarges the displayed image into the black border area around the edge of the monitor.

The AppleDesign Keyboard, bundled with the Performa 570 series since April, replaces the Apple Keyboard II as a less-expensive keyboard option, with an $85 Apple Price. It has a 105-key layout, complete with function keys and a numeric keypad, much like the Apple Extended Keyboard II, but it has a two meter ADB cable permanently attached.
