Keyboard

My current keyboard has had keys failing etcetera, and after cleaning the whole thing it hasn't gotten any better. So, I'm in the market for a new one. The reviewed keysonic looks good, but isn't stocked anywhere anymore.

in short:

- Laptop style keys, I really type faster on them

- Standard layout. I do not want to be searching for my special keys if I need them

- < €40

Any recommendations?

AppleK Pro

A shareware USB kernel mode driver for Windows for using Apple keyboards on PCs. The AppleK Pro lets you use Mac-specific keys for Windows functions. It also lets you use standard Mac keyboard commands in Windows, including force quit (Command-Option-Esc), create screen shot (Command-Shift-3, 4), and switch between applications (Command-Tab).

SharpKeys

SharpKeys is a Registry hack for Windows to map keys to other functions. Supports up to 104 mappings, an extensive list of available keys, and a "Type Key" option to help when managing mappings. Supports Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003.

Still don't think it is worth it.

Too complicated imo.
