    Alright -
    I started off with the apple keyboard but it broke and I never really liked it anyway. After that I bought a USB wireless microSOFT keyboard/mouse combination. I can't stand it though. The keys are not SOFT like on my powerbook. I love the keys on my new powerbook's keyboard so that makes me even more annoyed when i sit at my desktop. I used to have logitech keyboard which was pretty good (better than the microsoft one), but still doesn't compare with the one on my powerbook. I also have a dell keyboard at work which is at least equal to the logitech.
    My question is does anyone know of a keyboard, preferably wireless, that is as soft and comfy to type on as the one on the new powerbooks?

    PS: I searched threads for wireless keyboard and there were 500 results. I went through about 200 of them without any success, so I decided to post. Hopefully this question hasn't been asked already.

    Logitech Wireless Access

    I really like my Logitech Wireless Access... it's wireless but not bluetooth... so you have to put up with that USB wireless receiver. I really like it, but i ordered the bluetooth keyboard that apple makes simply because im going to use it to control my powerbook and the mac mini that im fixin to order... Good luck man...

    I happen to LOVE the Apple Keyboards... and the mice, even though they are one button.

    But, I need to say, my favorite keyboard ever is the one that came with my old 1998-era HP. It is an amazing keyboard, and I love it.

    Check eBay for it ;)

    I like the Logitech keyboards. You may also find Kensington to have something you like.

    Apple BT keyboard

    My vote goes to Apple BT keyboard. Nice feel to it when you are typing. No outside edge so the keyboard looks (and is) compact.

    I adore my Matias Tactile pro but that's not anything like what maxterpiece is asking for. He wants soft and comfy, the Tactile Pro bites back. Seriously, the best "soft" action keyboard I've ever touched was the previous apple keyboards, the Apple Pro. You can find them on ebay for 20-30 dollars. I don't know how they compare to the current apple keyboards.

    I highly suggest you look into the Logitech Elite Keyboard. I have one and I love it. It has a great feel to it, and may customizable buttons to make navigation very quick.
