The battle of the keyboards continues. My sparing partner is presently sold on the low profile mechanical key keyboard. His “thing” is Cyber-Punk portable computer hardware hacking and he is looking for the perfect keyboard for his build.

I am holding my ground for my Logitech MX-Keys. There is also a MX-Keys “Mini” version. I have more than enough computers


I notice on the Logitech website they no longer show the MX-Keys for Mac and now mark the modifier keys for both PC and MAC and presently name the product simply “MX-Keys”.

There is no “good over evil” battle. Keyboards are a personal preference.

I am not a fully capable touch typist. Never will be with my PN and numb fingertips. So my likings will be different on how the feel of the keystroke affects my skill.

I find the present day mechanical keys completely adequate albeit a bit more wobbly than the very short travel of the MX-Keys. I just LIKE the MX-Keys.

No reason for me to change or experiment back to the Clicity-Clack keyboard. I also have no need for fancy flashing lights and modifying keys and keycaps. Keyboard “modding” is a totally foreign concept to me. No problem with that. Just not my “thing”. Ha!

I will admit to being curious about the new low-profile mechanicals. I have no desire to spend $75 - $100 just to try one. I could travel to a computer store for a test drive. Not motivated enough to do that.

I already have a clicky wired mechanical keyboard named the “Happy Hacking Lite 2 Keyboard” made by Fentek Industries. The keyboard is decades old, but they still have an old-tech style website (https://www.fentek-ind.com


My plan is to just stand my keyboard ground and stay satisfied with what I am using. If there is ever a “real” need for me to acquire a new keyboard, I will visit the mechanicals as an option.
