    They want $60 for that? Well, maybe for people who type all day. I'll stick with this perfectly fine $12 Logitech keyboard :)

    I do like MS Comfort/Ergo keyboards, $60 doesnt sound bad for that and I might go and buy it so I dont need to use the keyboard what is on my laptop. You cant beat the ergo ones for typing.

    Very nice, and i am part of the 90% who use my right thumb for the space bar so this could be something that could speed up typing as moving my pinky to hit backspace does break my rhythm.

    Unfortunately unless you carry this about with you everywhere then once your used to it, using a work keyboard or a laptop will end up being very annoying, so for now i think i will think i will stick with consistency, inefficient as it is.

    Ahh but it has two space bars, how many space bars does your keyboard have, surely it's worth paying a bit more for twice as much?

    Not sure how to say that again without just using the same words.

    The article states 90% of people use their right thumb to hit the space bar key, which is what i do.

    Yea I just took it with a grain of salt, didn't think anyone actually typed this way.

    interesting, i find i use my right pointer finger for space bar and i hold my right hand diagonal so my pointer sits over n and my little finger sits over p so then back space isn't so far away. I can type pretty fast too. Self taught weird way ftw.

    I use both thumbs.

    Depends on what letter you type last generally.

    I thought i did too, but from looking tonight, i only ever use the right, while the left just hovers above it the whole time doing nothing.

    So it appears it's the successor of MS Natural 4000. Now I'm not sure if I'd rather like my current Natural 4000, this, or some mechanical keyboard.
