I got the old Microsoft natural that I use ever day but I also got an old:

 

RTB225CW+ from NMB designed for win 95 lol. It has the spacebar that is split and allows for one side to be used as a backspace.

I'm speccing a gaming/general use/some odd Photoshop/3D build and really have no idea what keyboard to get (currently typing on my ancient Dell Precision M60 workstation laptop). I was lusting after the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard but read that it's no good for games due to the usual 'can't press more than x amount of keys at once' thing, bit of a bummer that. Haven't got a clue now. Don't want anything too bling-y, which sadly many gaming keyboards come off as to me. Main thing would be replicating the smoothness of tying on a laptop (as well as supporting multi-key presses).

 

Every time I use my dad's desktop, it feels like a battle pressing the keys!

Hey Somnambulist, I think you should read this:

 

http://www.overclock.net/computer-peripherals/491752-mechanical-keyboard-guide.html

 

It includes descriptions of almost all types of key switches and keyboards they go with, so you can determine what keyboard is best for you.

 

Most all mechanical keyboards are the exact opposite of "bling-y," honestly, backlit keys are sometimes as fancy as they get. :D

Thank you! I'll have a gander through that now.

 

EDIT - that really IS extensive.

I have a Razer Lycosa, it's so easy to use as the keys have a softish rubber coating and glow blue. It is slightly more noisy than standard keyboards, but I love it. Also has a usb port and 3.5mm jack plug on it for ease of use.

After long time use, the rubber rubs off the keys.

The new Razer Black Widow as well. The keys that one is using hasn't been released, they say it's developed in-house at Razer, people are speculating some kind of Alps-derived key.

By illuminated mechanical keyboard I mean, ONE UNDER 100 FREAKING DOLL HAIRS!

 

Seriously, is it that expensive to light something up?
