Replace Your Keyboard Already

People get attached to their keyboards. Even when they get old, dusty and some of the keys have worn off, most folks keep these keyboards around forever. Working for a cable company, we see people everyday looking for old, outdated cables for their old keyboards. This is always baffling, especially when keyboards are so cheap nowadays. You can get a standard keyboard with no bells and whistles for fewer than ten bucks.

If you want to invest a little more into a new keyboard, we highly suggest a spill-resistant keyboard and mouse combo. It’s a little pricier than a standard keyboard, but worth its weight in gold when it comes to accidents. Liquid spills are a keyboard’s worst enemy; a surefire way to fry a keyboard. And who hasn’t spilled coffee on their keyboard? Our coffee cups usually sit just inches away from our computers like a silent threat. The same goes for your mouse. A spill-resistant keyboard and mouse duo would solve that problem, and ensure that both have a longer life span.

Foldable keyboards are another more recent phenomenon. They bend, fold and are washable as well. They have a USB connection, so you can plug them into any computer that has a USB port. Although it’s a full-size 109-key keyboard, its bendable nature makes it completely portable so you can throw it in a bag with your other portable devices. With a separate OTG adapter, you could even hook this keyboard up to your phone. This would come in handy if you have a long email to write while you’re traveling, and your phone’s mini-keyboard just takes too long.

Now that you have a few choices, you have no excuse not to get that old keyboard replaced with a shiny new one.
