  6. They sell for as low as $8.99 plus tax and shipping if you order this online.
  7. They are wireless which makes them great for moving around and using with a laptop if you want.

Ordinary keyboard. 
  1. We all know that a standard keyboard comes in all different shapes and sizes.
  2. They are a bit larger.
