So, this thread is slightly different from all the previous keyboard threads. Here's the deal:
A couple months ago I bought a Matias Tactile Pro keyboard. I totally loved it -- but then my girlfriend and I moved into a smaller place, and the keyboard is just too noisy to use at home. I am a big fan of clicky keys, but even I think that the noise isn't really acceptable in a home environment.
So, away it went, and I went back to the Macally iceKey, which is a 'slim' low key-travel keyboard that is quite quiet -- like typing on a laptop keyboard. After only about two months, it's already going on the fritz. Keys are failing, and I don't like typing on it for long periods. I wish there were a better alternative for a quiet keyboard. Anyone have any suggestions? It doesn't have to be low-travel -- just reasonably quiet, well-built, not crazy expensive, and not "mushy." Wireless would be even better. Anyone used the Apple wireless keyboard? For what it's worth, I really, really love the keyboard on my aluminum 12" PowerBook.
