You Don’t Have to Spend Hundreds to Get a Really Good Keyboard

If you’re not on a laptop or a phone look down at your keyboard. It’s probably the one that came with your PC. Maybe IT handed it over as they explained the no porn policy at the big company you work for. However you acquired it (and you almost certainly didn’t pay for it), there’s a very good chance it’s a hot piece of garbage. That isn’t your fault! The keyboards that ship with most towers and all-in-ones these days are not great. The same goes for the cheap £10 specials you pick up on Amazon. You need something better. You need a good keyboard.

The Secret to Razer’s Sick New Mechanical Keyboard Is Freaking Lasers

The office may hate me, but Razer’s new Huntsman Elite keyboard feels so good to type on I’m willing to suffer the glares for all the noise I’m making. It feels a little silly saying that what with me having expensive keyboard collecting habit. But Razer keyboards never actually wind up in the collection. For me Razer is too mainstream and has often seemed to sacrifice quality and typing experience for gamer aesthetic and flashing lights. The former is still very much apparent in the $200 Hunstman Elite, but its now been paired with some of my favourite keyboard switches I’ve typed on. These switches are so good I can overlook a lot.

Roccat’s New ‘Membranical’ Keyboard Tries to Be Everything to Everyone

The humble keyboard has risen in popularity in recent years; the seemingly infinite variety of models has turned the input accessory into something like watches for people with Newegg accounts. With companies trying to cater to every preference and price point, maybe it was inevitable that we’d end up with something like Roccat’s new Horde AIMO. It’s a £90 keyboard with an assortment of multimedia features and an uncommon “membranical” design that attempts to answer a series of seemingly contradictory questions. Is it possible to make a quiet typing experience without sacrificing the feel of obnoxious clackity-noise-making keyboards? Can we incorporate some much-needed features into a relatively inexpensive package? Can we make it look like it doesn’t belong in a college dorm and give it RGB backlighting? Maybe! Read More >>

Apple Finally Starts Selling the iMac Pro’s Sweet Space Grey Keyboard and Mouse

Apple Might Be Fixing the MacBook’s Most Annoying Problem

Let’s be clear, when I say the MacBook has an annoying problem I’m not talking about the paltry number of Thunderbolt ports, the lack of an SD card slot, or the fact that they’re priced way too high for such pitiful processors. The most annoying problem with the MacBook and the MacBook Pro is that the keyboard on each can be brought to their knees by a god dang crumb. But now, a patent found by The Sun suggests a fix could be on the way for future versions of Apple’s laptops. Read More >>
