A mechanical keyboard is something a lot of casual typists don’t consider, but like how snagging a nice mattress can make all the difference for your sleep,  it’s one of the easiest ways to make your typing experience more efficient and comfortable. Maybe the reason it doesn’t occur to a lot of people is because so many of the best mechanical keyboard are decked out for gaming, but there are great typing options for productivity, too. Take the Das Keyboard 4C TKL, which is now at its lowest price ever: $111.

The Das Keyboard 4C TKL is an RGB-less, aluminum-paneled, Cherry MX Brown-using keyboard with gray keycaps and an included ruler, in case you didn’t already realize that this is meant for office work. The one productivity concession it makes is its lack of a tenkey, which is actually a first for this brand, but that does also make it easier to fit on your desk.

This keyboard proves that mechanical switches don’t just belong to gamers, giving productivity users a stylish, sturdy typer with comfortable switches that make working for long hours much easier on your fingers.

The key selling point behind this keyboard is its sturdy construction and classy look. It’s got PBT keycaps and an aluminum top panel, plus rather than having feet, it uses a cute and genuinely helpful detachable ruler to give it extra height. It doesn’t have a ton of features- there’s no lighting or onboard memory or even dedicated media keys. But if you just need to be able to type comfortably, the 4C TKL makes for an easy pick this Cyber Monday.

    For me there is only one reason: I want a mechanical version of my Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop (preferably with bigger wrist pad and standard function keys — these are its only significant flaws, apart from poor quality control). Until then — thanks, but no, thanks.
