I am getting a WFH allowance, and my desk setup would work much better with a separate keyboard from my laptop. What are your keyboard suggestions?

Love my Logitech K780 multidevice wireless keyboard. It allows for seamless switching between devices (including iPhone/iPad) which is great if that appeals to you. Not the absolute best for typing a novel, but great for practical use.

Yes! Way more responsive than MacBooks, but obviously they are low profile so won’t pop like your old school keyboards.

Ditto the mechanical keyboard route

I have cherry mx silent at work and cherry brown at home. I used to have the logitech k750 (wireless solar) and that was great because it kept my desk clean and i could lean all the way back in my chair with the keyboard on my lap and keep typing. Going wireless was really useful in convenient ways! I think that was the most efficient keyboard and I feel like the mech thing is a little posh and over hyped, but hey I’m one of them.

I have the Das Keyboard 4 Professional Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Brown key switches and it’s the best I love it.

For those suggesting the mechanical keyboard route, which style of switches do you prefer? I believe that Browns would probably be a good direction to go, as they are rather neutral, but was curious what others had to say.

Yeah!! So I’ve been daily driving a Tada68 (now called Saber 68) with MX Browns and GMK nautilas key caps also got an aluminum case for it. Personally I love the 65% layout. I use arrow keys to much to get a 60 and I like the small form factor to much to go any bigger. I have an external num pad but I never use it. Mostly just got it to learn how to solder and program some macros.

Check out wasdkeyboards.com. They have lots of customization options. I got mine with Cherry MX Browns.
