Logitech’s MX Keys Mini is a compact keyboard for minimalists | Engadget


You haven’t had much choice for compact keyboards these days — many of them are mechanical keyboards aimed at gamers and hobbyists, and Apple’s Magic Keyboard doesn’t make much sense for non-Apple users. Logitech might have a more viable alternative for some people, however. It just introduced an MX Keys Mini wireless keyboard that shrinks the original MX Keys design into a tiny, minimalist footprint.

The MX Keys Mini doesn’t include a number pad or other perks from a full-size keyboard, but it does preserve the “Perfect Stroke” system that combines non-mechanical switches with dished keys that can improve your typing accuracy. There are even a few new functions you won’t get in the larger keyboard, including a dictation key for Macs and Windows PCs, a microphone mute toggle and an emoji key.

The Mini supports Android, ChromeOS, Linux, iOS and iPadOS using either Bluetooth or a USB receiver, with pairing for up to three devices. USB-C fast charging will help if you need a few more hours of typing in a pinch.

The MX Keys Mini is available now for $100 in dark gray, pink and silver colors. That’s not a huge drop from the $130 price of the full MX Keys, but it’s on par with the no-frills Magic Keyboard. It’s arguably a better buy if you prefer the ergonomics of Logitech’s keyboard, don’t like the feel of mechanicals or just want a keyboard you can easily shuffle between platforms.
