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!

Re: Keyboard recommendations
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.

Re: Keyboard recommendations
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:
