If our pick is sold out, we recommend waiting for a restock we’ve found nothing else out there with the K885’s excellent balance of price and features. If you can’t wait, any of our upgrade, full-size, budget, or portable options below may fit your needs.

Cherry MX does not make great mechanical keyboards, either. Just the most affordable with decent quality. I got a keyboard with Cherry MX Blue, which requires more force than the Cherry MX Red in the Logitech keyboard, and it is still so soft that I feel like my fingers need to flutter above it. It doesn’t help that bottoming out Cherry MX key switches is so hard that my fingers felt sore after a day of using it. I got rubber dampers to soften the blow that also decrease the travel distance.
How to Lock a Keyboard
Be it kids, cats, clueless family and colleagues or just a stray mouse that gets accidentally clicked, locking your keyboard or mouse can prove to be extremely useful. If your kids (or cats) are already older and can actually use the computer, you can check out:
The Sharkk Backlit Bluetooth Keyboard is the only (relatively) inexpensive, portable Bluetooth keyboard we tested to offer backlit keys, but it feels cheap and its keycaps pop off easily.
We looked at 75 keyboards after eliminating a number of new keyboards across the different categories and ruling out any that required a USB dongle to connect.
Even when you are clear about why your need a laptop computer and exactly what you will be using it for, you are still faced with what can be seen as a bewildering array of options.

Some things Apple does well, I had no trouble loading my mother 8767 s 69 year old photo CDs into Photo while she wasn 8767 t able to load them herself.
A great Bluetooth keyboard should be easy to use. It should pair easily with all your devices, and switching between devices ought to be simple, too. We focused on Bluetooth keyboards instead of models that use the older radio-frequency (RF) wireless, because the latter type requires a USB dongle, whereas Bluetooth models can connect to any device that supports the Bluetooth standard—most computers, tablets, and phones, plus some TVs—without requiring you to give up a USB port for a dongle.
Our upgrade picks have backlit keys, unlike the K885, and you can increase or decrease the backlighting level with a pair of function keys. After a few seconds of inactivity, the Easy-Switch automatically turns the backlight off to conserve battery. But—and this is cool—the keyboard lights up again when it senses your hand nearby. There’s no auto shut-off, though: The Easy-Switch won’t turn off entirely unless you switch it off, so you have to be mindful to avoid draining the battery.
Completely agree about Apple software. iTunes Spotify, iCloud Dropbox, and on and on and on, as you mentioned. Still love the Apple hardware, however, and you ll get good $$$ for those used products. They just last longer and are better made than comparable Windows items. Typing this now on a 7568 Macbook Air, works just as well as when I first purchased it. Try that with a 7568 Dell.
