I mean, a keyboard is a keyboard right? Well, I discovered that your choice of keyboard can make a big difference, and so I wanted to share my story with you… Around six or eight months back, I had to replace a broken keyboard and so I stopped out to the local grocery store with a tech isle, and bought the cheapest keyboard I cou...
