Keyboard recommendations
I use an Asus G73 gaming laptop. I also like using an external keyboard (Microsoft Wave, I don't remember the exact model number) for writing and gaming, because I love the laptop but I'm not crazy about the keys on it.

Anyway, it's almost time to deploy again, and my current external keyboard is a little too bulky for me to travel with (my laptop is big enough as it is). Can anyone recommend a good, small, easily portable keyboard that still has a comfortable enough layout for gaming and heavy typing? I don't care if the keyboard is one solid piece, or if it's one of the models that you can roll up or fold. I'd just prefer wired over wireless, so I don't need to worry about replacing batteries every few months.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

While flexible keyboards look cool and are durable, they suck to type on and as a consequence game on. Very inaccurate and hard to press.

I'd recomend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823333017 or other mechanical switch keyboard.
It's a slim style keyboard with mechanical key switches. Mechanical keyboards are better to type on and are more durable.

Had one of these since around Christmas already...don't regret this decision. Might be a pricey keyboard, but well worth every penny if you're going to use it a lot:
