Thomas Brand on the original Apple Extended Keyboard and why it’s superior to the Apple Extended Keyboard II.

I’m new to the mechanical keyboard club, with my first noise machine being the Das Keyboard.

These fantastically-clickety gadgets are like the Jeep Wranglers of keyboards — there’s an unspoken fraternity between owners that others don’t quite “get”.
