So I bought a soft-touch keyboard - the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard. It's holding up well, and very easy to type on. I wasn't looking for one with backlight, but now that I have it I love it. I don't remember the price. It's just really comfortable to use.

I can highly recommend:

and go with a Dvorak layout. Statistics state a 40% less likelihood of
carpal tunnel syndrome/RSI and the same percentage in touch typing speed
increase.
I've never experienced the former, but can vouch for the latter.

which wear off when you no longer need them leaving you with the blank
keys which nobody else can use.
Cheers!

And it should be fairly fast... I think I'm typing faster than my current cheap-o one can deal with, because I'm noticing a lot of transposed letters (or maybe I'm just overly tired right now, and the error is in my fingers.)
