Default durable keyboard or such?

I need keyboard opinions. I want a durable keyboard with a nice click on the keys. something kind of plain with maybe some media keys. no loss if it doesnt. i just want a plainish keyboard that is durable and makes a nice clicky noise when keys are pressed. any ideas.. i have seen some metal keyboards that are pretty cool.

you mean like a laptop keyboard? how the keys click. if your going to spend alot on a kb you should go to best buy and give theirs a test drive and see which one you like.
