Azio MK MAC BT is another great mechanical keyboard for your Mac. Design-wise, it’s a bit different from Keychron’s products – being predominantly white, vs Keychron’s dark color scheme.
The build quality is great, there’s aluminum finish (the top layer), and the keycaps themselves are made of quality plastic material. The color is also spot-on white, which matches the Apple aesthetic.
Unfortunately, the keyboard comes only with one type of switches, the Kailh Browns.
Customization-wise, you can only set how you want to use the function keys. There is also a volume adjustment wheel, which does work well. However, you can’t customize what the wheel does other than controlling the volume.
The keycaps are on the taller side, but the shape of them should help you avoid accidental key presses. Overall, can’t complain here.
Azio MK MAC BT comes with a detachable palm rest, which is a nice bonus.
Azio MK MAC BT: $100
? Battery life
Azio rates their keyboard at one month of usage time. I’d say that’s about right, but compared to the other keyboards on this list, the battery capacity is not stunning at just 250 mAh.

My second best pick for a mechanical keyboard for Mac. It’s a bit more expensive than the Keychrons, doesn’t let you customize your key switches, and there’s no backlight. That said, if you’re up for the white color scheme of the product and think it’ll match better with your setup, go for it.
Summary, which of these best Mac keyboards to choose?
The first decision you have to make is whether you want a low-profile keyboard or a mechanical one. Unfortunately, there’s no clear winner among these two categories. Some people love their mechanical keyboards, while others prefer the low-profile look and feel.
