ColorWare, a company that custom paints a wide range of electronics and Apple products, is now offering a custom-painted version of the Apple Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad.

ColorWare has offered a customized Apple Magic Keyboard for some time, but the Magic Keyboard with Keypad, which was released back in June, is a new addition as of today.

As with other ColorWare products, the keyboard can be painted in one of several different colors, with both solid and metallic paint options available in a rainbow of shades. While some products support multiple colors, Apple's keyboards can only be painted in one uniform shade, though there are options to choose a gloss or matte finish.

The Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad costs $129 from Apple, but ColorWare is charging $259 for the custom painted version, a premium of $130. Magic Keyboards with Keypad ordered from Apple are currently not shipping out for 5 to 6 weeks, but ColorWare seems to have some stock as the site lists a three week shipping estimate.

With the Magic Keyboard with Keypad delayed from Apple, there has been some speculation that a refreshed version could potentially be released alongside the iMac Pro in December, but we won't know if that's true until later this year.

When you have more money than sense.
Someone could say that about that 2016 Macbook you mention in your tagline. Someone. Not me of course, but someone as judgmental as someone else judging what someone else would be willing to spend to customize their keyboard and mouse.:rolleyes::p:D

Your pocket, their pocket, and my pocket aren't equally filled. Perspective.;)

Apple products are generally expensive enough. Don't know why anyone would want to spend another $130 to get them in special colours. I'll be curious to see how their sales do.
Right now you can buy a color-customized Xbox One Elite Controller for $264 ('http://www.colorware.com/p-621-xbox-one-elite-controller.aspx') from ColorWare. This isn't out of the ordinary for the company and they have shown that people are willing to buy it.

Some people buy nice dinners, some people buy fancy clothes. There are some that pay extra for a professional paint job on their favorite tech.

I don't know, if you think about it, people spend tens of thousands of dollars on something they'll use far less. If you find delight in having a colored keyboard, something you likely will use just as much as, if not more than, your bed? Go for it. YOLO.

I think a Magic Keyboard with Magic Trackpad built in would be better and something I would buy colored.

So that's where the supply ended up. Selecting a numeric keyboard added 5 weeks to the iMac order last time I checked.

Like Apple used to offer with their laptop screens... :p
I forgot all about those screens. Apple has a way of making a change that gets a lot of negative feedback then we forget all about it.
