Keychron Q0

Buyer's Guide: Best Gifts Under RM500 For Tech Enthusiasts 16

With laptops getting thinner and lighter, most users are stuck with the lack of a dedicated number pad, which can annoy some, especially those who work with numbers and data. Enter the Keychron Q0, which features an aluminium chassis, mechanical switches and sound dampening foam for a satisfying ‘thock’.

Yes, there are cheaper number pads out there, but the Keychron Q0 blows them out of the water, as it is built like a tank, and have features comparable to custom mechanical keyboards. There is a variant that is equipped with a rotating knob too!
