Thanks. From my prior research I had thought a Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro S RGB Cherry MX Brown Mechanical Keyboard - TKL Size.
It's the cheapest I could find with brown switches and non-red back light.
But without prior experience, £100 seems a lot before I know whether I like it.
I had (perhaps naively) thought there might be a cheaper option I could use as a trial first (around £50-60).

Hi,
in Germany the advice for newbies is often the Cherry MX Board 3.0 for ~ €60, we've allmost every week good deals for Coolermaster mks around €70 - €90, depending on model at http://www.zackzack.de/html/index.html, but this won't help you.
Something around €100 is a "normal" pricerange to look for genuine Cherrys, i've no idea about possibilities/deals in the UK, but i like to shop at http://www.keyboardco.com/, i've gotten my Filco Minila there, good reliable english business.
You might get lucky looking at Ebay or https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/search?q=%22EU%22+NOT+%22CA%22+NOT+%22US%22+NOT+%22AU%22&sort=new&restrict_sr=on&t=all to find something for a better price.
The need for ISO-UK is limiting you, it's the same for my german mates insisting on ISO-DE, the wider freedom of possibilities is starting to go ANSI mks and use something like http://eurkey.steffen.bruentjen.eu/start.html?lang=en. I love it for years by now and won't switch back to ISO, but i understand it's not possible for everyone depending on needs, work whatever.
Good luck to find something pleasing you!

Any upcoming Russian monolegend keycaps?
Hi, There have been some beautiful ones historically, but I can't find any current projects. Are there any keycap sets with only cyrillic letters on the horizon, that anyone knows about?

Using a Mechanical Keyboard on Mac
Most keyboard layouts and mechanical keyboards in particular are optimized for Windows-based machines and the shortcuts used within that ecosystem. If you’re a Mac user, or considering switching to Mac, you might be wondering how compatible your mechanical keyboard will be or if you need to do anything to improve the experience. What happens when you plug a standard mechanical keyboard into a Mac By default, the modifier keys on the left side of the bottom row will map as follows: Mac Control = Win Control Mac Option = Win Alt Mac Command = Win WinKey Taking a look at the layout of the two types of keyboards, this default mapping presents a layout change that might frustrate you and clash with your muscle memory. The locations of Cmd and Opt are swapped, placing Cmd in the center of the three keys. To rectify this, there are a couple different options, the latter of which may or may not be available depending on the model of keyboard you have or are considering. How to remap...
