“But I doubt that the backlit keyboard was dropped for power or cost reasons (at least, I hope it wasn’t). A more likely explanation might be that it was simply too thick.”
We talked about this in the DadCast Episode 26, Marco’s explanation is somewhat valid, LED are very small and power friendly so I can’t see it taking up that much room either. It does seem like this is an obvious oversight.
About Johnny Canuck
I'm a web developer, a techie, a geek and media junkie, a Montrealer and one of 2 Fat Dads. I blog on a semi-regular basis over at JohnnleCanuck.com
. I Tweet far too often about the Habs, Technology, being a Dad and of course Canada and The Great White North, so follow @JohnnyCanuck
I'm pretty much driven by my need to Get Out into The Great White North and exploring this Planet ERF while trying my best not destroying it in the process. I'm very GREEN as it also give me a really good excuse to be CHEAP.
