Did you skimp on the keyboard for your new PC? I did, and I learned an important lesson: a clunky, squishy keyboard for just $10 is no bargain at all. Luckily, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to trade up for a better keyboard—even a Bluetooth keyboard, in fact.
On sale for $31 (22% off), the “comfortable and responsive” Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard was named the best Bluetooth keyboard “for most people” by The Wirecutter, and it comes with a nifty trick up its sleeves: the ability to switch between up to three Bluetooth-enabled devices. Just tap one of the K380’s “easy-switch” keys to cycle the keyboard’s Bluetooth connection between, say, an iMac, an iPhone, and an iPad.
Weighing in at less than a pound, the K380 will (according to Logitech) work for up to two years on a pair of AAA batteries, and it’s small enough to slip into a knapsack, perfect for on-the-go touch typists. Read More
