I'm going to be doing lots of typing very soon for extended periods of time. I find my old Apple keyboard with the tall keys is very slow. The low-profile keyboard at the office seems to allow me to type considerably faster. That one is similar to the one Apple sells now, but does not have the two round caps on either side, near the far end of the board. Know what I'm talking about?

What keyboard can you recommend for very fast typing. Whether it be one of the newer Apple keyboards or a 3rd party keyboard that's compatible with Apple computers.

Thanks, Danny

Of all the Apple keyboards, the one I can type very fast on is the full sized USB Aluminum one. Also gives you a number keypad.

Use the low profile wireless keyboard without the numeric pad and much easier and faster to use than the old style with 'tall keys' My typing speed is 60 wpm.

Also as getting older and slower, no doubt, not as many typos hitting two tall keys at once.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
