    Hey guys, i'm looking for a new (wired) keyboard - the main thing about it is it MUST have nice buttons. At the moment i have this kboard *pics when i can be arsed to find my cam* and want something nice and new to use that isn't completely alien and ridiculously priced...

    apple pro keyboard is the nicest keyboard i have ever typed with its simply amazing, and looks the shiznit as well. it has nice soft keys, not soft as in actually soft but soft to press. go to an apple store and you will see what i mean

    (looking the shiznit is a good thing)

    I'm using a Memorex MX5200, and love it. Best key action I've ever felt. It's available in white or "chrome" (silver with black keys and palm rest). I would certainly suggest it to anyone, though I personally never use the multimedia keys myself. I like to keep my hand on the mouse.

    [edit]
    Just found a link in a post entitled "just ordered". http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=27584

    MS Natural Elite.

    Can't beat it. None of that 'square' rubbish for me. :p

    My MS Internet Keyboard Pro is very nice to type with, though slightly noisy at times.

    Natural elite is absolutely the best-- and with blue LEDs and a neon string under the keymat it looks brilliant too :D also its very comfortable to use, and all the keys are in the right position-- dont get an ordinary natural though because they have screwed up arrow keys lol

    still have a 1st generation MS Natural .. the one with the touchpad (which i used for ... 2? days)

    had this one since i was 11 (20 now).

    i smoke (ashes.. and i have a very odd ashtray .. a bottle 1/2 full with water which i spill once in a while) i eat at my only table (desk with keyb. on it) i usually drink something sticky (like coke), also quite frequently beer or such... and it's still alive =)

    i guess it survived about 15 drowndings, had to take it appart (quite easy) and clean those odd .. plastic 3-layer-thingy

    had the keys in moms dishwasher a couple of times.. well, sometimes it looks like new (for a week or 2) but it works like the first day and as long as i can, i will NOT switch to anything =)

    edit: about the modding:

    i won't, one simple reason: LED & glued elecs > dishwasher??
