  1. Apple keyboard


    I'm looking for a new keyboard to be used for some gaming (not too much) and I immediately though of an RGB one because the gaming typically happens at - you guessed it - at night.

    Now, I know that an RGB gaming keyboard can also be non-mechanical (a membrane one), but I'd like to have a go with a mechanical one.

    So I look into youtube to check out the nice Red, Brown and Blue (clicky clicky) types, and you can see the question coming from a mile away ...

    ... what type should I use ?

    So, I have been a user of membrane keyboards for what, let's say 30 years. I may have used some old IBM-like keyboards left and right, but I'm used with the membrane ones. And, I like them.

    What I did notice is that for years now I'm using an Apple keyboard, and I like those more than others. But, I never really thought why that is. But for those that don't know: they are actually quite like regular PC ones, be it that the keys are pretty "flat" so to speak.
    There must be not a lot of travel, and - thinking in mechanical keyboard context - they just bottom out very quickly ... but, they do have this resistance somewhere down or halfway their - short - travel distance.

    So I would like to repeat the question: which Cherry type looks most like that ?

    Also note : my Apple keyboard is pretty silent, so the Blue Cherry can be removed from the list Apple keyboard :)
    I ONLY need to know the Cherry type, I'm buying a keyboard with Cherry buttons, like a Corsair

    :)
