Best computer keyboards for work or play
It’s worth investing in something you type on every day.
Finding the right keyboard can be a daunting task, with so many brands and functionalities available. Regardless of your preference or use case—be it a board for every day work, one that is suited to travel, or a first time mechanical keyboard purchase—we’ve got the best choices.
An office workhorse. Amazon
Logitech has long been a leading name in computer accessories, and their master series solidifies that title. The MX Keys can connect to multiple devices at once, and its design is crisp and modern, with a full key layout, and delightful keystroke weight—the backlight even adjusts automatically to lighting conditions, in order to save battery power. On that note, the wireless board holds a charge for ten days, and charges quickly through a usb-c port.
A standard Bluetooth choice. Amazon
Even if you aren’t a dedicated Mac user, Apple’s Magic Keyboard remains one of the best picks for reliability and a minimalist profile. This keyboard is fully wireless, rechargeable via lightning port on the back, and features the scissor key mechanism that has made its keys so lightweight yet comfortable to type on.
Great for traveling. Amazon
This wireless Logitech model has a slot that can prop up a phone or tablet, and a dial that can flip between three different devices. Its slim profile and light weight make it a great travel companion, perfect for slipping into a small backpack or handbag. We also love the pop of color.
For that sweet clicky-clacky. Amazon
If you’re scouting a solid choice for dipping your toes into the world of mechanical keyboards, look no further than Varmilo’s TKL (which stands for ten-key-less). For an office setting—where you’ll want to avoid loud keys that could annoy co-workers—the cherry silent red switches are your best bet. But if you’re looking for that typewriter sound and feel, the blue switches should be your choice.
