You probably need a new keyboard

Need a new keyboard? So did I, so I checked a few out, went to Best Buy and opened a lot of boxes to test the keys, went to Staples and did the same, then shopped around Newegg, TigerDirect and Amazon looking for the best prices of course, and I ended up with an HP Elite Wireless V2 keyboard (ended up getting it at Best Buy). I may have some bias here because I have an HP Elite book that I like a lot, but this is one of the best keyboards I have ever used. It is very thin, but very rigid and strong, the keys are easy to use and feel great over long periods of use (8+ hours a day). If you haven't gotten a new keyboard lately, do yourself a favor and get a better one, if you are a professional and spend 8 or more (sometimes many more) hours in front of the keyboard every day you owe it to yourself to get a decent one. The link in this image is the best price I could find.

The Elite V2 is also very thin and light, you could bring it with you on a plane if you had to and you really wouldn't be giving up much space in your carry on. Overall this seems to be the best value in this price range, you can spend a hell of a lot more if you really wanted to (see example below) but for someone who is just looking for a tool to do their work, this is the way to go in my opinion.
