Bluetooth Keyboards: Writing With No Strings Attached

Bluetooth Keyboards: Writing With No Strings Attached

Nothing beats the fact that nowadays you can lay back and place your keyboard on your lap, typing away without worry or need for a wired connection, thanks to the proliferation of Bluetooth periperhals. Partner it up with a Bluetooth mouse, and your desk now has two less cables running amuck. Either way, here are three of our fav wireless keyboards for home office or even couch surfing with your home theater PC...

Apple Wireless Keyboard
If you have an Apple machine, chances are your box came with a keyboard already. But maybe you have an older model and want to upgrade to something less tethered. The completely cable-free Apple Wireless Keyboard uses Bluetooth technology to connect with your Mac or iPad. So you're free to move the keyboard just about anywhere within range and wirelessly type away. We love the minimalistic slim, compact design that takes less space but some people may need the numeric pad that's missing.

Arc Keyboard
This is a very stylish and compact keyboard that is compatible with your Mac too (and was tested and praised awhile back by our own team). As with any mini keyboard, the Arc doesn't come with a numeric pad. The Arc uses a USB wireless adaptor, deducting one USB port from your machine, rather than using the built-in Bluetooth protocol. But overall, the Arc is a solid choice for uses who switch back and forth between Windows and OS X or as a HTPC input device for couch-surfing.

Dinovo Mac Edition
A full size keyboard with numeric pad and lots of function keys, this model doesn't compromise in the usable keys department. Again, it uses an USB wireless adaptor instead of the built in Bluetooth signal. With this one, you get the slim line profile that is very comfortable but with the advantage of having all the keys you may need in a full size keyboard. A total winner!
