|Poseidon Tt eSPORTS backlit blue switch mechanical|
If using a Mac, consider the Das Keyboard Model S Professional (list price $133). If a Windows user, consider the Poseidon Tt eSPORTS blue switch ($99); it is backlit for those who type in the dark or who share their computer with a hunt-and-puncher.
