    Hi. The keyboard of our 2008 mac running Mavericks has many dead keys and I need a replacement. But the new Magic Keyboard isn't compatible. What brand new third-party USB keyboard can I use with it? TIA.

    In case you want something cheaper but still pretty good quality, I suggest you get the Royal Kludge RK71. It has full support for special Mac keys and has fancy features like RGB lighting for below 3k pesos.

    You can buy it easily locally at Lazada for as low as 2,300 PHP. Just search for "Royal Kludge RK71." Not as fancy looking as the Keychrons but for its price, its a great value for your money.



    Note that the review is slightly outdated, he says it's only available only in black but if you check Lazada they also have a white version.
