Das Keyboard
Now, some of you may remember, that I acquired a "Das Keyboard" for the purposes of generally showing off at work.
It's a 'precison weighted' keyboard that has lighter key pressures under the 'outlying' fingers, and heavier ones nearer the middle.

I've grown to love it for a couple of reasons. The first is, it's actually shockingly comfortable to use. Those key weightings may sound gimmicky, but they really are nice.
The other is of course, the ongoing geek-fu I incur from it's use.
But the _real_ reason is the look of consternation I see on faces of consultants etc. as they start to 'borrow' my PC, type for a bit, then look down because they've a password to type in, and doubletake because they can't actually deal with the 'no keys' thing :)

how much did you pay for yours, do you know?

More than I should have, I bought it from ThinkGeek, and so there was shipping and stuff. Probably about 100 dollars.
