i think the "click" your referring to comes from mechanical keyboards.

that keyboard is very nice, i had a few once however they keys are flat, like ones you find on a laptop.

why it referd to as "mini" looks normal size. and $65 is a little too much for me. you should look at the logitech wave. they have one at best buy and i'm typing with one now. i love the way the keys feel.

Too much money.

OCZ Elixir is pretty much the same exact thing for 1/3 of the price.

Newegg.com - OCZ Alchemy Series Elixir OALKBELXUS Black 104 Normal Keys 26 Function Keys USB Wired Slim Keyboard - Keyboards
