    Could you guys point me out to any Mac mechanical keyboards, preferably wireless. I'm having a hard time finding any. I'm aware that you can map out windows keyboard to mac but i really wouldn't like that... so if you know any please let me know!!!

    Thanks in advance.

    I've been using the Matias Laptop Pro for about 6 months now. You lose the Num-pad but I'm quite happy with it as a keyboard. I really like that the switches aren't terribly loud like most mechanical keyboards. Still have a nice action though.

    Very few wireless mechanical options right now.

    Happy Hacking Keyboard is fairly Mac-centric.

    Also, what won't you like about mapping another keyboard? Many allow you to move the key caps around so that everything is labelled correctly once you set it to mac mode.

    Unhappy Matias customer

    I purchased a Matias tactile pro several years ago. After 2 years it began to register multiple inputs for a single keystroke on some of the keys. I contacted Matias for repair advice, but they never got back to me. I was willing to pay to have it repaired since it was out of the one year warranty. I will never buy one of their devices again for this reason.

    I am looking at getting a keyboard from WASD now. Only drawback to them that I see is a lack of usb connection on the keyboard.

    I would suggest looking at wasd or daskeyboard. Both seem to have happy Mac customers.

    WASD makes excellent boards and they have great customer service. I had one of my keys repeating like you after about a year and a half on one board and they paid to have it shipped back to them for repair. Highly recommended.
