Main Question or Discussion Point

Full-size keyboards take too much space when you're on a small desk. But a minimal keyboard that I got turned out to be cap, I ended up making more typos and was unable to type fast.

So does anyone know of a decent small-size keyboard? With standard-depth, decent keys like those of a normal keyboard, that too many of those mini keyboards are missing?

I use one very similair to this (http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=W9828-BLK&cat=KYB [Broken]) it still has the windows hot key but is about the size of a laptop keyboard.
I bought it for a crowded server room but it's great on a desk.

Thanks.

Does yours feel like a normal keyboard, mgb_phys?

The one I use is the Kinesis Classic QD, now replaced by the Kinesis Advantage. Highly recommended, but unusual and takes some getting use to. You can find lightly used ones on eBay:
See http://mindprod.com/jgloss/kinesis.html [Broken]

IBM made one called the Model M spacesaver. I am looking for one right now for my partner. They seem to be highly valued and highly scarce.

I have written an essay on various unusual keyboards at
