Numeric Keypad

Do you use the numeric keypad?
If not, then get a keyboard without one.  This brings the mouse closer and reduces the risks of shoulder injury.

If you do use the keypad but not very often, then you can get a keyboard without one attached, and then have one separate for when you do need to use it.

Key Type

The tactile feel of the keys influences the way we type, and again is a personal preference.

Traditional ‘mechanical-switch’ keys are still available. These type of keys are what the earlier keyboards used and require a larger movement of key depression.

More modern keyboards are slimmer and keys have a lower profile. This was born from the keyboards originally made for laptop/notebook type computers. They use less key depression.
