Discussion on: Do you use a mechanical keyboard for coding? Show me your setup!

😂 Yeah Razer has that gamer aesthetic for sure. The best thing about having a keyboard for home is you can have nice loud clicky blue switches if you want.

Ideally I'd like something like a Poker or HHKB, because they are quite minimal and can look professional. I'm just struggling to figure out keycaps for them for mac.

HHKB looks good. I'm unsure about number pad not being there. But maybe it's alright and I don't need it. Thanks for showing that to me !

No worries! The keyboards without the numpad are very popular in mechanical keyboard groups. They're referred to as 'tenkeyless'. They're compact and look really cool, but not for everyone of course.

If you use reddit the subreddit /r/mechanicalkeyboards is a great resource.
