As they say in the Linux community, Microsoft makes great computer hardware accessories. I've been using the Microsoft Natural keyboard series for years and the 4000 model is the best I've tried. The angles are even stronger which makes for more natural hand positioning; the wrist pad is soft; and the keys have great travel and are almost silent (nice when you're in a room with other developers). Now if I could only get a mouse that clicks silently.
I've been using Microsoft's ergo keyboards for awhile now and this is my current keyboard for work. Because it comes with IntelliType, re-mapping the ALT key for use on my Mac isn't an issue. I love the lift that comes with this keyboard, bringing the wrist rest up off the desk. (Plus it looks neato.) My only gripe is that it doesn't have "previous" or "next" buttons for audio. It doesn't sound like a huge deal, but even the ol' beige & purple-buttoned ergo keyboards had them, so I got used to them.
The Microsoft Natural Ergo Keyboard 4000 comes in a cutting edge design and improved performance. It also has email and internet hot keys and helps ease stress on your wrists.
As a "button monkey", the only way I can it and slave away all day is with a natural keyboard. I love the features this one provides - lots of shortcuts at your fingertips: *Assignable favorites keys *easy access to home, search and mail *volume, mute and play/pause (great for when answering phones!) *calculator button (for those of us who can't do mental math)
