    Very beautiful decorating work.

    Please, please get mechanical keyboard instead of chiclet crap key. There is some nice minimalistic looking one like Filco Majestouch-2 Ninja, TKL version works too (without numpad). But for budget version, I don't know much about models but I'm sure there's some too.

    ANYONE who used mechanical keyboard CANNOT go back to any kind of keyboard like rubber, membrane, chiclet, etc.

    I'm so tired looking at designers/front-end developer or even back-end developers who don't have mechanical keyboard. It pains my fingers.

      Depends on who's working in the office with you. Some people may not like hearing the click-clack of a mech (even with brown switches with dampeners). I use MX Blues at home and an Apple wireless keyboard at the office.

        You'll hear people chattering, papers crumbling, cars out on the street, and all various noises you'll hear. Clacking is extra and it's not that loud on brown switch without dampeners.

          I personally hate the sound of mechanical keyboards in the office.

            Then don't use blue switches or other old-school switches that are loud, use dampeners and use quieter switches like brown or non-tacticle red.

            Anyway this is aimed for a workstation in own room or a wall.
