i plan on using my iPad as a secondary typing device on a desk. What Bluetooth keyboard do you recommend ?
Apple Smart Keyboard here costs 240USD and I don’t have that money right now. I’d like to spend a bit Less that than.
I’ve been researching this site but cannot decide cause most people want to use it on lap,etc etc.
I gues I will have to pair that kb with a good stand for the iPad. Right ?

I appreciate any input !

Logitech Slim Combo on iPad Pro. Much better than Apple's iPad keyboard. Includes protective case and stand. Great product.

If you want to use it on the desk, then why not just get a regular bluetooth keyboard. I use the Apple Magic Keyboard which is probably the most expensive of the bluetooth keyboards, but you can use any Logitech bluetooth keyboard, some of which only cost around $30-40.
