Keyboard Question(s)
Posted by: August West
Date: November 15, 2020 05:44PM
Like me, my SO is mainly working from home since March. While I have switched over to my mini & large monitor for all my formerly windows-based work, she is required to do a significant portion of work on a locked-down windows unit that can't be substituted with anything. So, I've got her nicely set up with dual monitors, audio & video, keyboard & mouse, all reasonably switchable between a MBP and HP laptop. The issue is that she is using a really old crappy dell keyboard I pulled from a box in storage.

I'l like to find a half-decent mechanical keyboard that can move between Sierra & Windows for her to try. Less than perfect solutions are encouraged, if you can advise me about anything regarding this task. She is much less geeky than us.

Thanks!

Just about any keyboard made can do that, wired or wireless even.

Only issue is command key vs control key.

there are several BT options that allow switching between devices -- mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, etc might be handy.

not a recommendaion, but for example:

I don't know that the K780 is a mechanical keyboard and not a membrane keyboard.

Yeah, she seems to prefer something mechanical. I have the MX Keys and Master 3 mouse, and appreciate the advise on the device switching. What she has now is a Logi mouse using the Logi receiver inserted in a USB hub, and the old Dell wired keyboard plugged n the same hub.

She will just switch the hub from the HP to the MBP.

My Wife hates her mechanical KB at work on her Dell, so bought her a fake looking apple one, which she perfers at home.

To each her own =)
