The HyperX Alloy FPS Pro is a high quality tenkeyless or TKL mechanical keyboard. As such, it's a keyboard that's missing the standard numeric keypad or numpad. If you're not an accountant, you basically rarely use the numpad anyways and this keyboard will be a great fit.
We use it for day to day programming work since mechanical keyboards are amazing for typing accuracy and comfort. On top of that, using a tenkeyless form factor allows you to place the mouse or trackball closer to your body which is more comfortable and ergonomic.
