Looks good with the black board with silver keys.

Well, can't expect a new concept from something named as mundane as "G705". Well specced though, and love the minimalist design going on there. Just love it. Is it really just for the American market?

Incremental upgrades and mix&match of old designs as always.

Sick and tired of SE at the moment.

Although the X1 is quite cool to play around with.
