TKL

10 posts

The abbreviation TKL stands for tenkeyless. It refers to a keyboard without a numpad, but with arrow keys still there. Strictly speaking, a TKL keyboard misses more than ten keys since the numpad usually also includes keys for the operators of the four basic arithmetical operations and an additional enter key. Some brands also use the wording “Tournament Edition” (TE) to refer to a tenkeyless model of a keyboard.

A tenkeyless keyboard has several advantages over a full-sized keyboard:

  • It requires less space on your desk.
  • It has less weight and is easier to transport.
  • It is cheaper (at least in most cases).

So if you don’t need a numpad, you really should think about a tenkeyless keyboard. The following posts present keyboards that are available in tenkeyless format.
