Adorable Keyboards for Professional Programmers


HHKB stands for “Happy Hacking Keyboard”, and it is made a Japanese company, PFU Limited. As you might have already guessed from the funky name and minimalistic professional design, these are specially made for programmers and hackers alike… Although kind of pricey, they are specialized in building these kinds of 60% “hacker” keyboards.


Rapoo is a Chinese brand, and some of you guys may cringe at the idea of a Chinese product… But let’s face it. Xiaomi, Huawei, Vivo are all Chinese brands, and they offer quality products. Rapoo is not-so-bad, given that the V500 is half the price of competitors, and it uses Cherry MX switches.


From American to English to Chinese to Japanese. Now we have Leopold, a Korean brand. Their FC660 series is a no-fluff, simplistic compact 66 keys portable keyboard – In 2 different flavours of Topre Capacitive or Cherry MX.


Don’t expect any fireworks from this basic keyboard. While this one does not have mechanical keys, no backlight, no sexy finished aluminum body – The good old classic Logitech keyboard does not disappoint. It is very comfortable to use, and it will last for years. An overall mighty decent keyboard with a solid build.
