Editorial Reviews

“I love my BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform and depend on it every day. The eXpress has become an essential tool as part of my desktop workstation! It is very comfortable and freed up so much of my desktop real estate. I also love the fact I can easily use it on my lap as well. As you can imagine, I scour through tons of tech and very rarely come across something truly useful like the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform.”

–Robert Scoble

“The Express Keyboard and Trackpad Platform looks like it should have been designed and built by Apple themselves! The BulletTrain Express is great for couch surfing and also daily text entry if you prefer the MacBook style, as I do. My old trackpad went from being barely used to a major part of my data entry routine, thanks to the BulletTrain Express. It works great on the desk, but shines on the lap, for couch surfing! It was clearly designed for this, with a comfortable bottom. There's really nothing else like it...and I've looked.”

–iPhone Life Magazine

“You're a dude (or dudette) that likes to be prepared, right? ....To that end, we're surmising that you're already gearing up for OS X 10.7, and while that new finger exercise regimen will definitely pay off in the long run, BulletTrain's Express Keyboard Platform is what you're really in need of.”


“The BulletTrain Express is the exact keyboard configuration that I wanted and didn’t think I would ever be able to find; it’s beautiful, functional, and it is an absolute must for anyone who loves their MacBook but also uses an iMac. As an added bonus, it is also the perfect solution for anyone who is using a Mac computer to drive their large screen TV. ”


“The BulletTrain Express...would be at home anywhere. It appears they have really nailed the ergonomics with this.”

–Apple Thoughts

“BulletTrain certainly has the right idea with the Express, which almost looks like something Apple themselves would have produced.”


“...with 10.7 Lion’s touchy-ness, this will be the perfect setup for your desktop Mac in Summer 2011...”

–9to5 Mac

Customer Comments

"I love my BulletTrain eXpress. I have two Dell 24" 4K monitors (they'd be Apples if Apple made such a thing) attached to flexible monitor arms, hanging over my bed and connected to my MacBook Pro, closed, in clamshell mode on the bedside table. I can lay back, put my knees up and use the BulletTrain on my thighs as if it was my MacBook Pro but I'm looking at two 24" 4K monitors instead of my 15" laptop screen. This isn't just a gimmick for the lazy. Sometimes I have serious back problems and being able to be as productive in bed as I can be at a desk, with a desktop-like set up in bed, is making me more money because I can do more productive hours than I would otherwise."

–David T.

"The BulletTrain eXpress is hands-down the best keyboard solution I've ever used!!! I've moved between 3 houses, but my 1 keyboard has been the ultimate way to use my Mac Mini in my Home Theater! I've had to replace my Apple Keyboard and Magic Trackpad once each, but the eXpress has been truly Bullet Proof!!!"

–Jeff S.

"Just wanted you to know that I have received my order of my BulletTrain eXpress and I am thrilled with the product!

I had tried a couple of other “solutions” for my I-Mac keyboard and trackpad. I was so frustrated with the other products — trying to balance the trackpad off to the right. It just didn’t work.

The BulletTrain eXpress solved my issues. Whether on my desk or lap it’s just the right size and works great!

Worth every penny of the purchase price."

–Dr. P.


–Randy S.

"A quick word to let you know I am currently using your BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform to type this, and it is amazing. I have found back my favorite setup for writing and clicking (have been a laptop user all my life but now using the Thunderbolt display with this configuration is simply awesome). The BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform is a great product."

–Paul L.

"Jake, I have now received my BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform and used it for a while. The finish is excellent and the ergonomics is unparalleled. Yours' is the only product I know of which places the trackpad right in relation to the keyboard."

–Tore O.

"Jake, Your BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform rocks!! My hopes were high, but let me say you truly exceeded all expectations. It's perfect for "couch" photo and video processing on the 60" Sharp LED HDTV. Thanks man!"

–Andy S.

"I wanted to email and tell you once again how much I love my BulletTrain eXpress… The space it clears up on my desk is so desperately needed. And the convenience of having the keyboard and trackpad together as a single unit that I can take with me as I move around the room just makes my multi-computer multi-tasking that much better and easier."

–Marc H.

"I've got the new BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform, and I am loving it–it has been an ergonomic lifesaver for me. Without it, using the Magic Trackpad on a desktop configuration was simply impossible–it caused too much pain. Now I use it on my lap as if it were a laptop and couldn't be more pleased. Great product and outstanding packaging!"

–Jed L.

"I love the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform! Quite often I am disappointed in tech products as they are not often as they are described. This product is different. I noticed this right from the beginning. The product was on back-order and when I emailed to find out when I would get mine, the product creator called me. We discussed the BulletTrain eXpress and he was confident I was going to love it. He was right. So, if you have used a MacBook Pro and loved it you will love this set up for your desktop."

–Carrie S.

"I love my BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform tray my wife bought me for my birthday! I stopped using my Kinesis Advantage "Ergonomic" keyboard after I got the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform because it is so much more comfortable than my other supposedly 'ergonomic' keyboard. One of the things I like so much about the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform is that I don't have to reach for a trackpad or mouse, since it is just in the right place. The BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform not only works perfectly, but it really is a beautiful work of art."

–Maury H.

"My BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform is PERFECT! It's exactly the thing I would have invented for myself if I had the capability. I hope Jonathan Ive sees it and falls in love and makes Apple buy you out for a billion dollars. This should ship with every iMac. Seriously, I wish you and your company all the best. Thanks for making the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform. It's going to change the way I work for the better. All the best, and feel free to quote me."

–Lisa F.

"The BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform is a beauty ;-) Thanks for great product and service. –George R."

–George R.

"Holy Guacamole!!! The BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform is amazing. I'm floored by how easy and natural it feels. I'm in love with the my BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform.."

–Chris N.

"I love my new BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform! It makes using my iMac in the living room so simple and so slick! Very Very Cool!"

–Porsche N.

"Hey Jake, I got the Bullet Train today and I have to say I am thoroughly impressed. I absolutely love it. It definitely alleviates my wrist strain/pain. My shoulders even feel better because my arms ar not at a better angle. I love that no matter where you push down, it won't tip over; it's very steady even when acted on by an unevenly placed downward force. The 3M gel rest I have works perfectly with the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform, so both my arm and wrists are supported. More perfect setup than I could have asked for. Thanks for putting in all the hard, careful work that was required to build something so elegant. I truly appreciated and acknowledge the labor, ingenuity and elegance you put forth to make this product a reality."

–Andrew F.

"I'm a big fan of the BulletTrain eXpress Keyboard Platform after using a Macbook Air for a year. Having a Trackpad right under you keyboard is probably the most ergonomic placement possible, and the built-in wrist support is something I enjoy in my Macbook as well. By themselves, the slight incline of the Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and Magic Trackpad makes them LESS ergonomic, as confirmed by my chiropractor. The BulletTrain eXpress Platform perfectly overcomes this challenge, and makes them both perfect."

–Tyler S.

"Received my Express over the weekend (Just wanted to say) ... LOVE IT!!!! Works so well on my HTPC in my lap and the best part my is my wife picked it up and huffed it off then used it in her lap in her favorite chair ... with in the same minute - LOVED IT!!!!! Can't go wrong with that type of WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor). I expect after a few of my friends see it in action they will be ordering a few right behind me."

–Harrison W.

"Love my BulletTrain Express. My iMac is now enjoyable. Thank You!"

–Jeff D.

"The idea for your product is simple, but your execution is absolutely brilliant! I have been fighting with my keyboard, mouse and trackpad on my Home Media Mac Mini ever since I set it up. The moment I saw the BulletTrain Express I knew that was the solution. The quality and build are unsurpassed. I have been showing it to family and friends, who don't even have Macs, just so they can see the how finely it is made."

–Ralph W.

"Hey Jake! I bought an express keyboard platform a couple months ago, and so far I'm loving it. You make a very cool product. Thanks!"

–Naren Shankar

Executive Producer of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Writer for Star Trek: The Next Generation TV Series.

"As soon as I got the trackpad for the iMac, I realized I needed a combo unit to hold the keyboard and trackpad together a'la Macbook. Nothing came close to the BulletTrain Express in my search. This looks so ideal. My MacHead friends are going to be drooling with envy...which is always nice."

–Chad G.

“The BulletTrain Express platform is a genius invention. Thanks”

–Warren N.

“Wow! This is the product I have being looking for since I got my first MacBook Pro with a trackpad. About one second after I finished watching the demo-video I clicked the "Add to Cart" button."

–André B.

“Hi Jake. I just wanted to let you know how excited I am for this product.  I work at the Apple Store in NYC and have been telling a lot of people about your product. I can't wait to receive the BulletTrain Express so I can actually show it off! Thanks for a wonderful product and all the best to you an your company. ”

–Mark K.

“You're more creative when you are relaxed, and that is what the BulletTrain Express gives you.”

–Lanny H.

“Thanks! Great idea BTW (as you are likely aware from the demand.) Someone sent me the link to the BulletTrain Express and I ordered it in under 30 seconds. I have a Mac Mini hooked up to my TV, so as per your website, it's a no-brainer purchase. I have in fact been looking for something like this for the past few months.”

–Stephen B.

The BulletTrain Express is an amazing invention you created. It is so effin' awesome...I use it all the time, and I was so impressed, I bought another one for my other computer. Thanks again.”


“The BulletTrain eXpress is great–it's truly the best of all keyboard/trackpad trays. Thank you so much.”

–Paul L.

“Hi Jake. I can't wait for the BulletTrain Express to get here! We built a new home theater and this is the missing piece I didn't know I needed until I saw it.”

–Chris W.

“I have a BulletTrain Express Platform and it is so ideal for my Mac Mini home theater set up from the living room couch. Seriously get one, use it and try to live without it after a few hours. The keyboard and trackpad are always exactly where they should be...never falling off the couch/bed. ”

–Paul S.

“I have a PC home theater and I ordered the express, it has exceeded my expectations so much that I ordered one for my daughter, she loves hers too.”

–A Rossi.

“I have suffered from severe carpel tunnel syndrome for many years. I have tried every keyboard know to mankind to help relieve the pain in my wrists. Since getting the BulletTrain Express i have noticed no fatigue and far more comfort when using my Express on my lap."

–Joyce C.

“I just got my BulletTrain Express a couple of weeks ago. Milled aluminum, very sharp, very clean & very "Apple:. Added to my 15" Macbook Pro setup along with a 60" LCD TV, it's the perfect media solution. For me, trying to use the Bluetooth Apple Keyboard and Magic Trackpad from my couch was a nightmare, now it's just like having a Macbook Pro on my lap.”

–J. Millard MD.

“Thank you, thank you and another great big thank you. Every time I'd sit down to use a desktop computer I would miss the trackpad on my 13" Macbook Pro. I ordered the BulletTrain Express Platform as well as the keyboard and trackpad. I can't wait until they arrive.”

–R. Snieder.

"You have made a 12 year dream of mine come true. I have severe repetitive stress injuries, and the only way I could type is with a laptop on my lap–for all the reasons you mention on your website. I tried everything including velcro-ing trackpads to keyboards, etc. with unsatisfactory results. I used to use a MacBook Air as a keyboard with an Apple display, which had been the best solution prior to receiving your BulletTrain Express. I am extremely impressed with my BulletTrain Express and thank you for meeting a real need!"

–Laurel H.

“I can't tell you how many people have seen this on my desk and love it. Wait sure I can, it is 5. 5 people who use iMacs as their primary machine and hate the setup of the trackpad and the keyboard. Your solution is perfect!"

–T. Lynch.

“I would like to say...THIS IS THE KILLER PRODUCT FOR HTPC USERS!!! No need for a mouse and keyboard, just put that baby on your lap and type away.”

–R. Jenkins.
