Here you go.

Not kidding either, that thing is a fairly nice keyboard. Not a sin to use a dome, if you like ’em.

I just don’t understand how you can hurt your fingers on a mech. If you feel like elaborating on why it hurts, maybe we could help better.

Meh, I find fancy keyboards to be geek pretension and of little practical value. For the cost of these fancy toys you can get three or four Lenovo 104 key business keyboards with nice big keys, good travel, and robust enough to last years.

$20

So I’ve spent a few hours searching and have found several!

<strong>IBM Lenovo Preferred Pro</strong>: ample spacing, full height keys, cheap. There is a sizable integrated palm rest which may or may not be an issue, I’ll have to try it to see. Amazon

<strong>Dell KB212</strong>: very generous spacing, somewhat lower “medium profile” keys (advantage or drawback depending on your preference). Amazon

<strong>Dell KB522</strong>: also “medium profile” like KB212, but with multimedia keys positioned very much out of the way of the main keys. Amazon

<strong>SteelSeries 6GV2</strong>: generous spacing, mechanical, full height keys, small borders. US layout is difficult to find. Amazon

This isn’t a whole lot to choose from, especially if you want some unobtrusive multimedia keys (1 option) or multimedia + mechanical (0 options). There may be more options from Dell; I stopped looking for Dells after finding these two. Something like KB522 with taller keys would be an interesting one to add to the list.

If you know any others, please post a link!

It’s a Lenovo, I believe this one :

https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-73p5220-External-Preferred-Keyboard/dp/B000AOYWVE

And yeah it ispretty bland but “gets me from a to b”

I just feel like I am missing out..maybe I’d need time to adjust? Like I’ve used other keyboards before and man they SUCKED but this one is rather pleasant IMO.

Using that IBM M13 would be refreshing. I’ve never owned a mechanical keyboard, and love the standard non mechanical IBM one that I use right now(https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Preferred-Desktop-Keyboard-73P5220/dp/B000AOYWVE). I recently became interested in the older IBM style keyboards and have been close to purchasing this one http://www.pckeyboard.com/page/product/UB40P4A a few times. I would love the heck out of that M13.
