Transform an iPad 2 into a MacBook Air with this $50 keyboard

Yeah, we know, we know, new MacBook Airs are expected to drop in a few weeks, but for those who can't wait or have an iPad 2 and just want a sleek and inexpensive keyboard cut from aluminum to match their shiny tablet, M.I.C's keyboard has you covered.

Unlike competing iPad 2 keyboards, M.I.C's Bluetooth keyboard is styled with Apple's Chiclet-like keys that run to the edges just like on the 11.6-inch MacBook Air. When closed up, the iPad 2's 9.7-inch display is neatly hidden and shielded from dirt and dust.

There's no multitouch trackpad, but this is as close as it gets to building a cheapman's MacBook Air. For $50, it's not a bad deal.
