laser-marked keycap

(lā´z&r markt kē´kap) (n.) A keycap on a keyboard that has had its legend burned into the surface with a laser. In the manufacturing process, the entire keyboard typically is placed into the machine that uses a laser and series of mirrors to etch the legends onto the keycaps all at one time. Laser-marked keyboards often are not printed until right before shipping so that the keyboard's layout is not determined until the last moment, which enables the manufacturer to provide products more on demand.
