Mechanical keyboard is aimed at gamers and typists
If you asked a bunch of gamers and people that type a lot what sort of keyboard they favor most, many would say mechanical ones. The mechanical keyboards have a lot more typing feel and feedback and are more comfortable to use. One of the cooler of the mechanical keyboards out there is the Das Keyboard.
Das Keyboard has launched its fourth iteration called the Das Keyboard 4 and it comes in professional and ultimate versions. The only difference between the two versions is whether you get letters printed on the keys. The uber geeks touch typists can go with the ultimate version for blank keys. Other can get the professional version for normal QWERTY layout on the keyboard.
The keyboard also has a choice of two different kinds of Cherry MX mechanical keys. You can opt for clicky Cherry MX Blue mechanical switches or Cherry MX Brown switches that are tactile, but less clicky. The version of the keyboard with blue switches is $169.
If you want the less clicky brown switches, you will need to spend $173. Both versions have media control keys, a large volume knob and a magnetic base. That magnetic base replaces flip down plastic feet and can be used as a ruler as well. The keyboard has a dual port USB 3.0 hub and a 6.5-foot long USB cable. The keyboard supports Windows, Linux, Mac, and Chrome.
