Three Reasons to Switch to a Mini Keyboard


Why You Should Switch to a Mini Keyboard

When you imagine your workspace, what has the biggest footprint on your desk?

Your monitor? If you are using a wide screen, perhaps.

That unruly stack of papers in the corner? For some people, definitely.

However if you are using a full-size keyboard, chances are it is right up there. There is an alternative, however. Increasingly popular, the mini keyboard offers plenty of advantages, especially for those who work on the go or rarely use the numpad. Here are three:

1. Mini Keyboards are Better Ergonomically

For many people, especially those with narrow shoulders, choosing smaller equipment can greatly enhance their ergonomic experience in the office. This is particularly important because excessive reaching can lead to discomfort and strain. 

When using a mouse, it’s common to have it positioned next to the keyboard. However, with a standard-sized keyboard, there’s often a considerable gap between where your hands naturally rest and the mouse, which can force you to stretch and compromise your posture. This is where smaller keyboards come in handy, as they help bridge this gap and promote a more comfortable and neutral position, especially for individuals with smaller statures. By reducing the need for excessive reaching, smaller keyboards contribute to a more ergonomic workspace, ultimately benefiting the health and well-being of users.

2. Mini Keyboards are More Portable

If you are working on the go, all of your equipment must be easy to pack up and have a low profile. That description simply does not fit your standard keyboard which tends to be bulky and can be 50% longer than some laptops!

By removing the number keypad and other buttons that typically populate the right hand side of most keyboards, mini keyboards are substantially smaller and easier to store in a bag or backpack so you always have your equipment with you, wherever the work day takes you.

Additionally, Penclic’s premium scissor-switch keys make it thinner than your average keyboard, further decreasing storage space.

3. Mini Keyboards are More Adaptable to Different Workspaces

If you have a large desk you always work from with plenty of space for your computer set-up, the logistics of finding room for your keyboard probably isn’t a concern.

For everyone else though, a mini keyboard offers numerous advantages, particularly when it comes to adaptability in various work environments, such as when traveling for work or not having a fixed workspace. Its compact size makes it incredibly portable, allowing for easy transportation and setup wherever you go. Whether you’re working in a cramped coffee shop, on a plane, or in a temporary office space, a mini keyboard can fit comfortably on any surface, maximizing available workspace. This adaptability is especially beneficial for professionals who frequently find themselves on the move or in different locations, as they can maintain productivity without worrying about compatibility issues or space constraints. Additionally, the smaller footprint of a mini keyboard means less clutter and more flexibility in configuring your workspace to suit your preferences. Moreover, its convenience extends to packing up, as its small size makes it effortless to stow away in a bag or luggage when not in use, ensuring seamless transitions between workspaces. Overall, the versatility and portability of a mini keyboard make it an essential tool for modern professionals seeking efficiency and convenience in their work routines..
