ProBook 6550b keyboard specs

HP Recommended
ProBook 6550b
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I'm looking for an external full size keyboard that has similar feel and sound to the keyboard found on my HP ProBook 6550b.


I've tried finding the following information about the keyboard on the 6550b but failed:
- switch type
- key actuation force
- key actuation point
- key travel distance


So, I'm wondering if anyone here know those specs for the keyboard on the 6550b?


And maybe even point me to an external keyboard that you know would have similar feel and sound?

I doubt those specifications are publicly available and I don't think it would necessarily take you further forwards if you had those specifications. Laptop keyboards are, by their nature, a compromise because of size and weight considerations. Unless you are looking for an external keyboard that is designed to be portable, there is a lot to commend the 'full size full travel' desktop keyboard format. I, personally, am amongst those who are partial to good quality keyboards with mechanical keyswitches.


There are some good quality external keyboards in smaller form factors that use 'chiclet' keys like your ProBook. The brand that comes to mind is Matias; their products are available in many countries, not just their native Canada, and they seem to have a good reputation - though I have no personal experience.
