Most mechanical keyboards are marketed towards gamers, but the Das Keyboard has always been designed specifically for typists and office dwellers. The Das 4C ditches the number pad for a more compact footprint, and Woot’s marking them down to $85 right now, the best price we’ve ever seen.
This particular model comes with Cherry MX Brown key switches, which Lifehacker describes here:
Cherry MX Brown switches represent a more even hybrid between gaming and daily typing. They feature a soft, tactile bump near the middle of the key, which means you don’t have to press the key all the way down to register a keypress. The result is that you’ll spend less time pressing all the way down on the keys just to type, and you’ll eventually type faster and with less effort. Some gamers prefer keyboards with actuation points in the middle of the switch because it makes double-tapping much easier (although you have to know precisely where the bump is to take advantage of it, and not knowing can lead to mis-taps). Since the bump is in the middle of the switch, you can “hover” over it, depressing the key just enough to not get to the actuation point, but far enough that even a slight twitch will register a keypress.
