SteelSeries is pretty well-known for its gaming products, and this gaming keyboard is really no different. The SteelSeries Apex 7 TKL Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a great looking gaming mechanical keyboard that offers up some sweet RGB lighting too.

What sets this one apart though is the mini OLED smart display that is on the right side of the keyboard. It is an integrated command center for adjusting settings and tracking on the fly info straight from your game, Spotify, discord, and more. Which, is actually really cool. Imagine interacting with Discord without leaving your game.

The HyperX Alloy Origins is a really good mechanical keyboard that you can pick up and use for gaming too. Now, this keyboard doesn't have the macros of some of the other keyboards on this list. So it's not perfect for gaming, but it'll get the job done.

As with most mechanical keyboards, this does also have RGB available, for some really cool colors and to give your desk a bit of color.

The HyperX Mechanical Switches are rated for over 80 million keystrokes. So this should keep you going for quite some time – or at least until the office opens up again. This is also a great keyboard because it does have the dedicated number pad on the right.

Apple Magic Keyboard

All of the keyboards on this list do work with the Mac, but this is still the best option for Mac users. This has all of the Mac functionality built right in, and it pairs seamlessly. Not to mention the fact that it also has some pretty incredible battery life. We're talking months on a charge.

Now unlike its laptops, the Magic Keyboard still uses the Scissor switches and not the Butterfly switches. So you won't have any problems with this keyboard dying after a while.

For Mac users this keyboard is so great because it has the same layout as their laptops' keyboard, making it pretty seamless. And those scissor switches are really nice too.
