The latest keyboard trend seems to be to go smaller, sleeker and better looking. However, many of these new fancy keyboards seem to have missed out a key point of what you use a keyboard for â€“ typing. In order to use a keyboard comfortably for a long period of time, you need good key travel and keys that are sized and weighted well. This isnâ€™t always the case with these new slim and sleek keyboards.
There are of course times when typing isnâ€™t the be all and end all for a keyboard, like when youâ€™re playing games. This is also when all these dinky keyboards come into their own, since theyâ€™re easier to carry with you when you go to a LAN Party or just over to your mateâ€™s house. Some of the keyboards on test even light up, making it easier for you to create a gaming atmosphere with the lights down.
Here weâ€™ve rounded up four keyboards that are clearly more concerned with looking good and staying slim, than with ergonomics or functionality. If itâ€™s more important to you for your PC to look good, than it is for it to be user friendly, youâ€™ll find something here to suit your taste.
