I prefer slim laptop style keyboards, but it doesn't really make much difference to me. I can use any type all day long with no problems.

yeah i have an old logitech corded media keyboard which is kinda a cross between an ibm and a membrane. It has a nice click to it, but it's not a super hard stop when you reach the bottom of the keystroke.

I would like to try typing on the new logitech wave keyboard. it probably feels alot like my G-15 @ home.
