If you use your Chromebook for work or school, you can use it with a docking station and external monitor. Using an external monitor can provide more screen real estate and docking stations can offer additional ports for multi-tasking. Of course, you’ll need a quality keyboard to complete your workstation. When choosing a keyboard for daily use, you’ll want to have both comfort and reliability. There are a range of ergonomic designs, key layouts, and advanced features to consider when shopping for a keyboard. In this list we’ll take a look at the best keyboards to use with your Chromebook, at a variety of price points.
As a preliminary note, there aren’t very many keyboards designed specifically for Chrome OS. In order to offer a variety of options, we’ve also included keyboards designed for PC and Mac in this list. Keep in mind that any of these keyboards can still work with your Chromebook, using F1-12 as a replacement for function keys. In addition, remember that Chrome OS can run on a variety of hardware, so these keyboards will work for your tablet or Chromebox as well.
- The Brydge C-Type wireless keyboard is a very stylish option with Chrome OS integration. As with the Logitech K580, you get a row of Chrome function keys at the top. The key travel on this keyboard is excellent and provides an enjoyable daily typing experience. On top of all those features, you get great battery life and a lifetime warranty.
Those are our six favorite keyboards for use with your favorite Chromebook or other Chrome OS device. Most of these options run under $50 at Amazon, so it is quite affordable to pick a keyboard for your needs. If you want the overall best Chrome OS integration, we recommend checking out either the Logitech K580 or Brydge Type-C wireless keyboards.
