Ohh, a few of my pals are big mechanical keyboard fans, which are you currently using?
A few! I've got:
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 I’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. :)
