New Keyboard but which one?!

I'm currently thinking about getting a new keyboard as my current one is getting a bit old.

Currently I am using a Apple Pro Keyboard (white) and before that I has a Apple Pro Keyboard (black).

I have found they are excellent for typing and also last forever. Both of them still work perfectly.

I was looking at maybe getting a 'gaming'(cringe) keyboard as they look really nice and would go well with my Deathadder

The keyboards which have caught my eye so far are the Razer Lycosa/Arctosa and the Microsoft Sidewinder X6.

As I've only really gone for apple keyboards for the past 8+years I have no idea about these 'gaming' keyboards but think it might be time for a change

At the moment the Razer Lycosa looks good as it has a USB port, rubber keys and a removable rubber wrist rest.

I'm just not so sure about the key layout, don't like the small return key. They remind me of laptop keyboards

My saitek eclipse is getting old too so ill be interested in what you pick

You looking for something like me? Function such as usb port, volume keys not necessarily loads of function keys

High profile keys (not laptop style) - with a nice feel such as aluminium? Perhaps backlighting?

Any reason you aren't considering Logitech?

The g15 looks ok, but does it have 1ms response time and anti-ghosting?
