    Hi MacRumors.

    I just want your opinions on which keyboard is better... the Traditional, Thinkpad-reputable Lenovo X201 keyboard or the Chiclet keyboard of the MacBook Pro.

    I have experience with Chiclet keyboards with the first generation MacBook I used from 2006 to 2007 and the HP DM3z I am currently using since I bought it in October 2009, and am really satisfied with it, but also was really satsifed with my MacBook Pro "classic" keyboard.

    The most impressive keyboard I've ever used was on a Dell inspiron 1451 (or something like that). Don't knock me, the computer was pink, weighed a ton, and was about 4" thick, but those keys had a nice light press, and a good travel. It beat the pants off of any other keyboard I've ever used, mac, pc, and even good desktop keyboards.

    But otherwise, I prefer the thinkpad keyboard over the chicklet style keys any day, but second to that I'd go with a good samsung keyboard over even the non-unibody macbook pro's...

    So in order:

    1. Dell
    2. Think Pad
    3. Samsung
    4. Macbook Pro (non-UB)
    5. chicklet style
