The keyboard is considered by most to be the most important peripheral connected to the computer. This is the main input device that people use to control the computer. It's what you type with! A good keyboard will feel right under your fingertips and last a long time. These come in many varieties and some of the best ones are mechanical and have heavy duty switches under the keys that feel good when you type. Many come with extra programmable keys and extra buttons for controlling your computer, like play/stop buttons and knobs for volume. They even make a keyboard that has a piano built into the wrist rest for people who like to jam out!
