Lenovo’s ThinkBook KB Pro Mechanical Keyboard Delights With Its Color-Coded Functional Areas

Designed to be serious but with a slight hint of quirkiness (the kind most creatively-inclined professionals will relate to), the Lenovo ThinkBook KB Pro mechanical keyboard pleases with its well-thought-out keyboard layout that color-codes functional areas. The keys come with a unique rectangle-to-circle design that has a retro appeal to it, reminiscent of typewriter layouts and are color-coded in a way that intuitively clubs them into functional groups that are easy to access while within your peripheral vision. Important conference functions such as volume control, locking the screen, or showing the desktop can be done at the touch of a button. Additionally, the keycaps are interchangeable, allowing users to choose between two different color schemes.

Designer: Lenovo

Designed with a focus on functionality, the ThinkBook KB Pro features 83 hot-swappable keys and is built using durable and wear-resistant PBT polymer. It supports wireless connectivity in two modes: 2.4G wireless and Bluetooth, while also providing the option for a wired connection. The keyboard is equipped with a substantial 2,400mAh battery pack, delivering a week-long battery life even with the backlight turned on. Pre-orders for the new Lenovo ThinkBook KB Pro mechanical keyboard will commence on June 9, 2023, with a price tag of 699 Yuan (approximately $98 USD).

The ThinkBook KB Pro is a winner of the Red Dot Award: Product Design for the year 2023.
