a keychron K6 should be a solid choice, if you have a higher budget then go with the ducky one 2 mini, though it is not bluetooth.

Check aliexpress, though shipping is added into costs now, still should be $50 or less for one.

 

maybe gearbest and banggood as well

 

ebay or amazon should have the same chinese brands but with a bit of a market up if the shipping is faster

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

The Anne Pro 2 is a fairly popular choice, and you have a decent amount of switch options. Get either a Gateron or Kailh Box option, depending on what you want. If you want to pay more for worse switches, get Cherry.

I saw this Royal Kludge one. It's bluetooth and I like it better because it has a bare blue backlit. For some reason I only want that, lol
