re: Ohh, a few of my pals are big mechanical keyboard fans, which are you currently using?
 

A few! I've got:

  • WASD fullsize keyboard with MX Browns
  • 60% with DSA Overcast and Gateron Greens
  • Varmilo VA68M with DSA Royal Navy and 65g Zealios
  • WhiteFox with 67g Zealios
  • Ducky One TKL with MX Speeds

And going to build a 65% keyboard with GMK Oblivion next. :)

Why do people like mechanical keyboards?

Whenever I use a keyboard with big, raised keys it feels so clunky. Like Iā€™m being slowed down.

Probably just so use to the slim-line MacBook keys.

Should I be giving these keyboards a red-hot-crack?

Sounds like you've used some super clunky keyboards then. There's a lot of them out there and some people love those. I recommend checking out a keyboard with MX Speed switches, or Kailh low-profile switches. They became a thing because keyboards these days are cheaply made. Mechanical keyboards fixed that, and then came customization to the nth-degree, which made people (including me!) flock to them. :)
