Microsoft Surface Ergonomic Keyboard (AAFES, Military Only) $36.97

Back in stock at AAFES. [shopmyexchange.com] Sold out quickly last time it was available at this price. The keyboard was also marked as a clearance item so I'm surprised it was restocked at all.

Shipping is free when paying with the Military Star Card or spending $50+.

It's covered in alcantara. It's a great keyboard for typists.

A survey revealed that while 82% of Secretaries are touch typists, 18% are still hunt'n peckers.

I think Microsoft went a few steps backward with this keyboard by removing the magnetic riser and attaching the num pad. In my opinion the Microsoft Sculpt is much better

Some say palm rest gets very dirty over time, almost impossible to clean, brown stains. Really weird...

Sorry I didn't intend to quote you.

It doesn't seem like a slob issue, maybe material + orientation of hand. I've already come across two top post on Amazon say the same thing. one claims to wash his hands all the time and nothing will get that stain off. Others question the ergonomics. Many speak of connectivity issues. In any event this is probably on sale for a low sales reason.

Maybe at AAFES, but this is #58 in keyboards on Amazon and has 312 customer reviews. Definitely not a slow seller at other stores. AAFES is just weird sometimes. I've seen them clearance out stuff that was released a few months prior and is the still the current model.
