The best keyboard I’ve ever had

I saw a sale on slickdeals today for the keyboard that I have loved and used for years now, the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000.  At the time of this posting, Amazon is selling this keyboard for $25, which is a great deal!  If you are a programmer or use your computer all day as part of your job like I do, you should definitely consider checking this keyboard out.

This is the modern version of the now obsolete MS Natural Pro keyboard, which stopped being made back in 2001.  I owned a few MS Natural Pros and have owned a few of these since 2005 or so.  Here are a few things that I really like about the keyboard:

  • The palm rest – it’s padded with some kind of leatherette or naugahyde and is VERY comfortable.
  • It’s heavy and sturdy!  You can pound on these keys and the keyboard doesn’t feel like it’s going to break.  Not like most of the cheap plastic junk you get with a new computer.
  • The multimedia controls are simple and convenient.
  • If you’re a touch typist, like me, this will allow you to be even more efficient.
  • It’s definitely one of the preferred keyboards in the developer community by people that know what they’re talking about.

Like I said, if you are looking for a better keyboard and haven’t tried the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 pick one up now while they’re so cheap.  You won’t be sorry!
