I’ve used the Das Keyboard with my MacBook Pro the past few weeks and it’s been a great experience. I had never used a mechanical keyboard before, and like most people, I thought a keyboard was just a keyboard. But after just the first week, the differences between the Das Keyboard and the other keyboards completely blew my mind. Whether it is the audible clicking sound as I type or the tactile feel of pressing each key, I really enjoy typing on it and have seen my typing speed significantly increase.
If you’ve hesitated because you own a Mac, there’s no need. Das Keyboards work fine on Macs. I haven’t had any problems with mine but I also took the time to set up my keyboard preferences correctly. On all PC keyboards the option and command buttons are inverted from the normal Apple layout, which can really mess you up if you aren’t ready for it. Luckily, it’s an easy process to fix this. Go to the system preferences, open keyboard preferences, and change which actions are set for the option and command keys to remap your modifier keys.
In order to make things easier, we created a video to show you step-by-step how to set these keys up in the Apple layout. These changes will ensure you get the greatest enjoyment out of your Das Keyboard.
