Whenever we make this type of compilation, from the ITIGIC writing team we want to tell you which options have caught our attention the most. However, you have to know that this is a totally personal opinion and that it is marked by a series of needs that may or may not coincide with yours, so our choice does not have to coincide with the one that best suits your needs. .

On the other hand, entering the higher priced options, without a doubt the keyboard that we liked the most has been the Keychron K2 since it is fully adapted to Mac users even though it is not initially adapted to Spanish.
