    I am currently looking for comfortable external keyboard (for my macbook) for my home office. I do a lot of typing and I prefer "notebook style" keyboards. I would like to spend less than 70 USD. I looked at Enermax AURORA but in my country (Czech republic) it is quite expensive (100 USD) and only in English but I prefer that keyboard style.
    I have been also looking at this one: Logitech Ultrax Media but there doesn't seem to be much info about it.
    It doesn't have to be special keyboard for mac and I don't mind if it is wired or wireless.
    Thank you for any suggestions.

    if you like the style and feel of the macbook keyboard, why not get an apple keyboard? wireless is US$79 but wired is only US$49.

    I thought about that. The fact is that I didn't use the macbook keyboard for long typing, I am using low profile external keyboard for that which I would like to replace. I have read several articles and opinions and there are mixed feelings about the long typing on apple keyboard. And another problem is that the only shop (the sad thing is that it is apple authorized reseller / importer for my country) that has apple keyboard in stock wants more than 150 USD for USB version :(

    I was going to suggest the same thing; I bought one for my Mac Pro and I really love it.

    Thank you very much for your replies, based on them I will go deeper into my pocket and buy the new apple keyboard :) Just found new one for about 75 USD in my country (it is more than I wanted to pay but it seems it is worth it) :)

    I love my Apple keyboard, it quite frankly is the best keyboard I've ever used.

    I can't say the same about the Mighty Mouse, it's a stinker, but the new silver Apple keyboards truly are the best on the market in my opinion.
