This is not cheaper than the Magic Keyboard, but if you would prefer something other than that, I recommend the Lenovo Thinkpad bluetooth keyboard:


These are the only 2 cons when using with a Mac, but I’ve been using it for years and it’s not a big problem for me:

  1. The battery percentage does not show in the Bluetooth menu, so you have to go by the color of the blinking light on the keyboard.
  2. After it goes to sleep when idle, it takes a few seconds to wake up and re-connect to the Mac, during which the light will blink quickly. If you attempt to type during this time, you could end up changing the language setting of the keyboard and type in foreign characters.

Like I said, it’s not. A typecover, but it’s the right width and it’s trackpoint is the most compact you can get for an integrated pointer. I have one, and if my typecover ever dies, I’ll keep using it as a cover and use the thinkpad keyboard to type.
