No doubt Apple makes really great hardware in terms of build quality and functionality. However, Apple products are a bit costly when compared to their counterparts.
The Apple Magic Keyboard comes in a robust aluminium chassis while offering a variety of colors to complement your Mac, making it really great choice for Mac users. However, even the smallest Magic Keyboard will set you back by about Rs 9,500.
But, what if we told you that you can get a keyboard that is much cheaper than Apple’s Magic Keyboard but offers the same experience in terms of looks and feel while also being wireless!
Yes, it does exist, thanks to the Logitech K380 Wireless Keyboard. This keyboard has everything that a Mac user would ever want from a keyboard and much more.
In terms of features, this keyboard can connect to up to three devices at once via Bluetooth and switch between them with the press of a button. With this feature, you can use the K380 to start typing an email on your computer, move to your smartphone to send a quick text message, switch to your Apple TV to change your background entertainment, and then swap back to your computer to finish up that email all with just a press of a button.
The K380 is compact and lightweight, but not small enough to force your arms into an uncomfortable position. Making it comfortable to type for extended periods of time and best of all, all the Mac keyboard shortcuts that have been passed on to iOS are also supported, as well as lock/unlock on the keyboard.
In terms of looks, the K38 has a very minimalistic design language with round keycaps giving it an ultra-modern look. The keyboard comes in 4 colors black, blue, off-white, and rose.
The two downsides being, firstly the K380 is made from abs plastic instead of aluminium used on the Magic Keyboard and secondly, the keyboard is powered by AAA batteries instead of an inbuilt battery that charges via a USB cable; however, this won’t be an issue if you are using rechargeable batteries instead of alkaline batteries.
Overall, the Logitech K380 is a really great keyboard for anyone looking for an feature-rich, easy to carry keyboard with a compact design.
All these features at the price of Rs 3,295 make the Logitech K380 one of the best. alternative to Apple’s Magic Keyboard.
