PhD keyboard


My keyboard has served me well over the course of my PhD. I bought it second hand off gumtree for £4 in Edinburgh, and picked it up in an ASDA car park.

It’s a Fujitsu Siemens KB SC, a model introduced in 2006, I think, I had a hard time finding information about it online. It has a UK (British) English 105 ISO key layout, with rubber dome switches, and connects by USB. The key caps are laser printed so the letters haven’t worn away at all. I very rarely use the numpad, but have done on occasion when entering data into a spreadsheet. I like having the full F-row, because I can use it with Karabiner in macOS to control the volume as you would on a normal mac keyboard.
