    "The Ultimate Hacking Keyboard is a split mechanical keyboard. It is fully programmable. The split keyboard would take while to get used to, but apparently once you do you won't go back. I'm not real sure about the split keyboard but I would be a huge fan of the add on trackball. That alone would make it worth getting. It fits the topic."
