There’s just something about mechanical keyboards that make them a punch above membrane-based models. The drawback? Sometimes they look pretty goofy and not modern enough.
Magic Keyboard’s Keychron K1 perfectly integrates a slim profile and modern design into a traditionally mechanical setup, making for one of the most alluring keyboard designs out there.
You get a slim mechanical wireless keyboard with an RGB backlit Mac key layout. It even comes, most notably, with a dedicated Siri button. Don’t worry if you’re a Windows user, though. Magic Keyboard’s got an exact same one for PC folks, too.
On to the specifics. The Keychron K1 uses Fraly low profile blue switches to provide a vintage typing experience. That said, the keyboard forgoes the nostalgia and opts for a more modern aesthetic. The result is, of course, the best of both worlds. You get the authentic feel and mechanism, but also a polished, current-generation design with an aircraft-grade aluminum body. It helps that it’s uber tiny, too — just 18mm thin.
The Keychron K1 is capable of connecting up to three devices simultaneously and charges up via USB Type-C, which is perfect for your new MacBook. Depending on which version you get (choose from these: 87 single LED backlit keys, 87 RGB backlit, or 104 RGB backlit), the thing ranges in price from $74 all the way up to $94. That’s not too bad for what looks like a pretty solid product.
Magic Keyboard is taking orders for the Keychron K1 now, and they’re going to ship out sometime this month. Get it in black or space gray.GET ONE HERE
