Default help me find a keyboard

I'm looking for a slim, laptop style key keyboard. currently looking at the lycosa, by razer, but it's somewhat expensive, and i would like to find something cheaper. the fatal1ty keyboard has horrid reviews, so it's out, so i was wondering if someone here could help me. lights don't matter, blue is preffered, and basic keyboard functions, nothing special, i don't need macro keys or anythign else.

newegg search is your friend:

Slim Keyboards Listed on Newegg

what are you using it for? (not gaming, id assume) and whats your budget? thatll help narrow it down... - RK

(also, if youre looking into wireless, let me know... i use a Logitech DiNovo Edge keyboard... and its the best ive ever owned... or used for that matter... its pricey tho... just a thought )

huh... well... anything from Razer is solid...
other than that, heres a few of my personal choices... tho it mainly comes down to opinion, to be honest...
Newegg.com - Saitek PZ30AUR Red 104 Normal Keys 4 Function Keys USB Wired Slim Eclipse Keyboard - Retail
Newegg.com - Rosewill RK-7310 Black 104 Normal Keys 7 Function Keys USB Super Slim Multimedia Keyboard - Retail
Newegg.com - Creative Fatal1ty White & Black 104 Normal Keys USB Slim Gaming Keyboard - Retail
good luck, and happy choosing - RK

that new logitech g15 hands down...i was weary of buying it because ppl say its not as good as the old one...a friend of mine bought one and after using it for a few minutes, i just had to have one...

its got the lcd screen and the programmable keys and the cool orange lights...but you might have to relearn how to type since the keys are a little awkward at first...

i paired it with the g9 laser mouse and I am having a helluva time using them. i have been paying crysis with it (no crysis download for the lcd yet) but its amazing...doom3 is pretty good with it as well...world of warcraft etc...
