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.
