    I've been using the Microsoft Natural 4000 which I bought from NewEgg for $51.99. It's been great thus far and it's got programmable keys (though I rarely use them). The space bar is a little harsh (you have to depress it a bit) but otherwise the keys are quiet and dreamy to type on. I highly recommend it.

    I've used the original white (well cream and brown by the time its finished with :rolleyes:), the wireless natural and the new natural 4000 keyboards.

    They are all excellent keyboards and the only reason I changed from the wireless one was I was getting fed up with changing batteries. I would say natural 4000 should keep you happy :)

    +1. The 4000 is the best, most comfortable keyboard I've ever used. Before it I had an earlier MS Natural model that I'd been using since '99, which is still plugged into the Windows box. Keep an eye out for sales, too. I got the 4000 from newegg for about $35, which was a fantastic deal.

    Hmm, as someone else said earlier -- the space bar is a little weird. I'm not sure if it's broken, or if it's just supposed to be this way. It seems to be working normally as I type this, but it still feels weird.

    It's like you can wiggle it and it'll pop up and down like a normal keyboard; or, like it is now, it just kind of stays pressed down and you just tap it to make a space -- it doesn't really move very much. It kind of sticks.

    I use an Adesso. I think it's the Tru Form or something like that. My only complaint is that after four or five years, some of the keys are trying to pop off.
