    Hi.

    I am sick to the back teeth of my Apple keyboard. It makes far too much noise when typing and the keys i feel a little too unresponsive (specially the Enter key which sometimes stick as I hit it with my little finger (UK version))

    Ideally, what I want is the layout of the Apple Keyboard, but the keys to be laptop style keys - that are a hell of a lot quiter to type on, and that are much better for typing. When typing on my laptops I type like 20% quicker.

    Does anyone know of such a keyboard?

    Logitech

    Logitech has a wireless setup... the S530 I think it's called. White with a command key. It's a little soft and has a chintzy built in wristrest, but it's quite similar to a laptop keyboard.

    If you want to save $10 or more, the S510 I think is the same keyboard with a different mouse, and not Mac specific. Not entirely sure if everything works seemlessly though.

    The black one looks snazzy from what I can see...

    I wanted the Macally one but it is corded. I love my BT one. The Tactile Pro is by far the best keyboard I've ever used, but never owned. I wouldn't spend $150 on a keyboard as I already type hard and do not find any real reason to bother with such an expensive keyboard. I would love a full size keyboard that is like my powerbook. That would be sexy and snappy all in one.

    Scan.co.uk has a decent selection. Windows of course but the key functions are basically the same. You'll need to look for the UK PC keyboard layout on Versiontracker as well.

    I use the ACK-5000HL for Win & Mac. It's got scissor-style keys, 2 USB ports and working volume controls on a Mac (doesn't work properly on PC's which is ironic).

    Oh yeah. That's the same as the 5000HL. Only without the backlighting.
