If you’ve just bought your shiny new Mac, or are still looking for the best Mac computer, you may be thinking about accessories to buy and customize the experience right after setup. Apple’s computers come with a more than capable keyboard and Magic Mouse, but they don’t provide the more tactile feel that many people love. The keyboard may be too shallow, which many people might dislike and find hard to type on. Luckily, macOS and Apple computers support a wide variety of keyboards, including mechanical ones.
