In an odd twist of fate, Cherry MX might be better known for its mechanical keyboard switches rather than its actual keyboards. The company's steadily filling up its garage with a fleet of appealing clickers, however. The latest model in its lineup is the Cherry MX Board 1.0 TKL, a minimalist typer of the tenkeyless variety.
The Board 1.0 TKL puts all the niceties one would expect from a premium keyboard into a small, space-saving design that measures in at a mere 14.6" x 5.9" x 0.98" (370 mm x 150 mm x 25 mm). Purchasers can pick between Cherry's blue, black, brown, or red switches. Cherry claims the board's key caps are laser-etched to resist wear and tear, and with full n-key rollover and anti-ghosting, the keyboard should be reliable and precise, as well.
Fans of RGB LED lighting might be disappointed that the Board 1.0 TKL doesn't double as a rainbow-colored flashlight. It does offer dimmable white backlighting and an illuminated USB port, however, and users can pick a model that omits lighting altogether. Cherry MX hasn't put a due date or a price on these new keyboards yet, but promises to support them with a two-year warranty.
