As comfortably large as the keyboard is, I was disappointed that it didn't have adjustable feet on the back. It does come with two sets of rubberized feet to tilt the keyboard at different angles (7 degrees or 10 degrees). Pop out the old ones (and find somewhere safe to put them, or you'll misplace the little rubber devils); pop in the new ones. Unfortunately, the elevation change is tough to notice--the keyboard is designed to lie flat.
