As regular readers know, my RSI means I can’t abide horrible keyboards for long and I tend to get shot of the manufacturer-supplied one for something a little more finger friendly. Previously I’ve recommended Mac ones, but I’ve found a nifty PC one too: the logitech ultra-flat keyboard. It’s basically a keyboard liberated from a laptop, and that means low profile keys, a small footprint and really nice action (man). Best of all it’s around £10 – £12 if you shop around.
Good keyboards are essential, I reckon. Not only do they help reduce the risk of RSI – clacky keyboards are bloody painful to use for even reasonably short periods – but a fast keyboard will make your typing faster too. And the logitech one is really, really fast.
