Your keyboard has to be one of the most important components of your computer, with out it we wouldn't be able to communicate and that is what everything is about, from internet to hardware or software evetything works by communication and the keyboard allows you to do that. But this isn't about that.
What kind of keyboard do you have and like and why? I have a Microsoft Internet Keyboard. (http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/keyboard/ik_info.asp) It has a bunch of buttons for mail, but I never use them, I use my scroll lock more than I use those buttons. The only one I really use is the Caculator button because its SO easy and positioned perfectly right about the number pad. But the mail reason I like it is because it is big and can take a beating. I mean I can really pound away at these keys and they pop right back up waiting for more. My roommate last year had the Logitech Cordless Keyboard and mouse combo. The mouse rocked (until this great new MX mouse came out) but the keyboard, was flimsy and light. I thought I might break it because it was so delicate. And it didn't elevate enough. I like a nice big rise on my keys. My girlfriend has a Dell standard keyboard. It is quiet and looks like, but feels too soft, and it is too small. Small might not be the right word because the key sizes look similar, but I guess as a whole its not big and elevated enough. My keyboard is strong looking like it conquers my desk. I like that.
And how do you people with Ergonomic keyboards like it? I have tried them and honestly I think it slows my typing speed. Because of that gap. I usually hit the key with my closest hand, So I won't always press Y with the same. And I didn't find them to be comfortable, I think it was the elevation and all of that.
Those MAC keyboards look nice, I like the look on them. But again I felt like it was flimsy just like the logitech mouse i described above.
And on a side note, I like heavy mice. The fact that the cordless oens have batteries and make it heavier is a plus. I feel like I am sometimes going to though those corded mice off the desk, but no worry, they are corded. I don't see why people complain about that.
I was just looking around Microsofts keyboards, what have they done with the Insert, Delete, Home, End, PageUp, PageDown keys right above the arrow keys? eww I don't like it. I also hate keyboards that don't have the arrow keys and that little patch of keys seperated. I once was typing on someone's computer who had a sleep button right there, I turned the thing off SO many times...
