Default Keyboards

I have large clumsy fingers and am constantly double-keying when I type. When I desire a "p", I sometimes get "p[", or "a" I get "as", etc. My Dell keyboard is very sensitive to the lightest touch and therein lies the problem. The Key "delay" and "repeat" variance settings do not solve the problem.

Are there keyboards available requiring depressing the keys all the way down to dead clunk bottom before a letter or numbver (see what I mean) is registeerd on the monitor?(as in the old Smith-Corona manual typewriters)

Thanks in advance.

logitech sells http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/ke...s/192&cl=us,en
and it seems like if it has really thin keys so you wouldnt have to press all the way down. Or you could get one of those new razer tarantulas.
