The interface your fingers deserve.
The MK Typist A is the evolution of typing. If the IBM Model M had a great-grandchild, it would be the MK Typist A. The Typist combines rock-solid construction, brilliant tactile and audible feedback, clean styling, and durable keycaps (see: Model M) with modern advancements users expect and didn’t know to expect (see: 10 different key layouts) from a mechanical keyboard in 2018.
For first time mechanical keyboarders
In both features and price, the MK Typist is designed to be the “no-excuses, stop typing on a cheap membrane keyboard now!” input device. If you spend any significant amount of time typing, you owe it to yourself to type on a quality device. The MK Typist A is that device. It is plug-and-play ready for Windows + Mac and features Industry leading switches, construction, and keycaps.
