Over the years I have spent a small fortune on upgrading computer keyboards, probably because I started using computers in an age when the keys clicked or clacked. At that time personal computers were expensive and the peripherals hadn’t yet become commodity products.
My latest, a Happy Hacking Keyboard, is without doubt the best of the lot. It’s tiny and expensive but has a great positive typing action — tactile feedback, but very subtle. I suspect this is due to the Topre keys used, compared to the more usual Alps or Cherry mechanical keys used in high-end keyboards.
It’s not quite the perfect keyboard but my only real problem (more of a learning curve) is the lack of dedicated arrow keys. Other than that I love the small size and how it feels I could write on this for hours.
And best bonus feature of all? No CAPS LOCK KEY.Posted on September 22, 2011 #Design
