As a writer and former software engineer, I must admit that I pay a great deal of attention to keyboards because it is probably the most used tool in my computing arsenal.
One of the selling points of the iPad Pro is the Smart Keyboard accessory that is sold as an optional purchase. It is a pretty popular choice due to the fact that it works seamlessly with the tablet, although there have been many reviews that basically say that there is still a lot to be desired in terms of the overall feel.
If you’ve ever wondered how to get started building your own custom mechanical keyboard, then this is the perfect beginner’s guide for you as we’ll walk you through all the necessary steps that you’ll need to get started.
Gaming products typically receive a pretty bad reputation for being unnecessarily expensive. If you’re looking to get your hands on a gaming keyboard, some of the options in the market today have them priced at $100 if not more, but if you’d rather not spend so much, you could be in luck.
When it comes to laptops, the focus is mostly on portability. As such, certain compromises need to be made, such as with the keyboard where they tend to be slim and offer up low travel when pressing the keys. However, this doesn’t mean that all laptop keyboards are bad, in fact, Lenovo’s ThinkPad laptops are rated to have some of the better keyboards around.
With the launch of the iPadOS platform, Apple has finally introduced support for mouse. Many feel that this ultimately turns the iPad Pro into a potential true laptop replacement, but if you’re not a fan of bringing a mouse around with you, then you might want to check out the new Brydge Pro+ iPad Pro keyboard accessory.
For the longest time ever, Apple’s keyboard and mice were offered in a white and silver finish. However, when the iMac Pro was launched, the company launched a set of brand new accessories with a black and gray finish which was actually pretty well-received, and now it looks like we have a new option to choose from.
While Apple’s MacBook Pros are undeniably powerful (expensive, but powerful), if there is one weak point in the laptop it would be with the keyboard. There have been multiple complaints about the keyboard, but if the rumors are to be believed, Apple could finally be addressing them in 2020.
While the majority of external keyboards will work with a Chrome OS computer, they tend to fall slightly short as there are certain keys that are missing, but for general typing, you should be able to get away with using a standard keyboard with your Chrome OS device. However, if you’re a stickler for optimization, then look no further than Logitech.
Typing on a touchscreen keyboard is perfectly fine for firing off short messages, but as you might know, typing out longer documents and emails can be tiresome. This is due to the lack of feedback that you get when typing with a virtual keyboard versus an actual physical keyboard, but it seems that Apple could have an idea on how to fix that.
We all get frustrated when we play games, where sometimes things just don’t work out the way we intend. Frustration can manifest in many forms, with some people choosing to swear, some people choosing to “rage quit”, while others might choose more destructive forms of venting their frustrations, like in the case of Twitch streamer Dellor.
One of the selling points of mechanical keyboards are the switches that comes with it. These switches are what determines the keyboard’s feel, like is it going to be clicky, how tactile it feels, how smooth it feels, and what kind of sound it makes. Usually when you buy a keyboard, you’re required to choose the switch beforehand as typically speaking, they can’t be changed afterwards.
One of the ways Apple has been trying to position the iPad Pro has a productivity device is with the introduction of the Smart Keyboard, essentially transforming the tablet into a pseudo laptop of sorts. Apple then upped their game by announcing that with iPadOS 13, they will finally be bringing support for mice.
The other day, Apple made a surprising announcement at its iPhone event. Typically the company reserves its new iPad announcements for much later in the year, but for some reason, the company decided to launch a new 10.2-inch entry-level iPad at its event. One of the changes they made is the introduction of the Smart Connector.
