Something wireless so your laptop can be off your desktop.

Are there any factual benefits from using those kinds of keyboards or is it all just a marketing scheme?

^ It's supposed to be more comfortable, but I doubt it really does anything. Remember those stupid split keyboards?

Also keep in mind that unless you buy the mouse/keyboard combo, it will be a wired keyboard.

Yeah, my next keyboard will be a G15 when this Logitech Elite goes belly up... in like 20 years. :?

Get a real keyboard.

Solid construction means it will last until the end of time, and it is easier on the hands because there is mechanical feedback which means you will use less pressure when hitting the keys. I've been using the same keyboard since the late eighties, and it is still running like a champ.

If you can't bludgeon someone to death with your keyboard and still be able to use it for regular computing, than you have bought the wrong keyboard.

My very first PC (a Packard Bell 386....33MHz CPU) came with that exact same keyboard in 1990!! :D

So if you've been using that since the late 80's, you've had the same keyboard since you were like 5 years old??? That's pretty impressive, though there is nothing quite as smooth as a nice new keyboard :)
