MacRumors Giveaway: Win an X1 Keyboard and iPad Stand From Satechi

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Slim X1 Bluetooth Backlit Keyboard and an Aluminum Desktop Stand for the iPad, both of which are Satechi's newest accessories.

Announced last week, the $70 Slim X1 Bluetooth Backlit Keyboard is a compact, travel-friendly keyboard that works with Apple's Macs and iPads. At 11 inches long and 4.5 inches wide, it tucks neatly in a bag or backpack for taking on the go, but it still has a full QWERTY layout.

For those who prefer something larger for desktop use, Satechi also has the Slim X3 Keyboard, which features the same design but with a numeric keypad and additional function keys. Both versions are available with either Bluetooth connectivity or a wired connection.


The keys are backlit with 10 adjustable brightness levels, and multiple Bluetooth connections are supported so you can swap between a Mac, ‌iPad‌, and iPhone with just the press of a button. There are built-in macOS and iOS function keys, and a USB-C port is included to recharge the keyboard.

Designed specifically with Apple users in mind, the keyboard has an aluminum build that is meant to match Apple devices, and no special setup is required for it to work. It is compatible with 2012 and newer Macs, the ‌iPhone‌ X and later, and Apple's iPads.

Alongside the Slim X1 Bluetooth Backlit Keyboard, Satechi unveiled the Aluminum Desktop Stand, which is built to work with Apple's modern iPads, including the 2019/2020 iPad Pro and 2020 iPad Air, but it is also compatible with iPhones and any other 4-inch to 13-inch smartphone or tablet.

Priced at $45, the Aluminum Desktop Stand is designed to turn the ‌iPad‌ into a multi-purpose workstation. An adjustable mount and base hinges allow for the ‌iPad‌ to be positioned just where you need it, and the stand can be used in either landscape or portrait mode.

The mount is adjustable to 180 degrees, while the hinges can be adjusted 135 degrees, allowing for quite a bit of flexibility for hands-free video watching, FaceTime calls, fitness videos, and work when paired with a keyboard. It can even be folded down and used as a sketching base.

As the name suggests, Satechi created the Aluminum Desktop Stand from aluminum in an effort to match Apple's devices, and it is available in a space gray shade. Grip pads on the stand hold your devices in place while you work.

Can you expand on this? I too have the MX Keys (via bluetooth) and the MX Master 2 (via bluetooth) and have no issues with keyboard connectivity and none with the mouse except that the mouse will not wake from sleep, only the keyboard will do that.
I actually have the opposite issue. I have the MX Keys, Master 3 and the Vertical because I wanted to use Flow across my mac and PCs.

The mice last forever and I have no idea the last time I charged them. The keyboard has frequent issues for me and it won't wake the computer from sleep, only the mice will do it. I have tried both Bluetooth and the USB dongle. The Black MX Keys backlight would turn off on PC (but not Mac for some reason), and the gray MX Keys will disconnect and not work with PC but will still work on my Mac. It's almost like the keyboard has different minimum battery level requirements depending upon what device it's actively paired with. I have a spare logitech 10keyless that I keep by my PC in case the MX Keys stops working.

I really don't have a lot of issues with my Mac and these devices compared with my PC, but 90% of my work at my desk is with my PC. I am trying to migrate back to the Mac ever since I found a solution to use my 49" display with my MBP.

Looks like they copied Apple's horrible full-height left/right arrow keys. Too bad. Even Apple realized that was a mistake, putting form over function.


I don't have issues with that, but for several weeks the "visit us on fb/instagram/youtube" links don't register the click. So I get 4 entries rather than 7, but that's ok. The first entry infinitely increases my odds, while each successive entry only increases odds by a tiny amount.
I see the opposite problem... they copied the half height up and down. I want all arrows to be full height.
