I'm looking for a new keyboard :)

I'm not sure if I want a wireless or wired one, but some requirements are:

- Multimedia button, like play/pause, forward/backward, mute/unmute and volume up/down.

- I hope for something that looks simple, but it's not that important

- I really like when the keys is like on the Apple keyboards.. Or like on the Thinkpad Edge..

Any ideas? :)

You are also welcome to discuss wireless vs wired.

Do you touch type?
Are a keyboard's looks important or is form factor more important?

What do you mean with "touch type"?

Well, ofcourse the feel and "form" is more important.. It got to be nice to use, more or less.. But one of the most important things is that the buttons are like the ones on a Thinkpad Edge or Apple keyboard, if you know what I mean :)

What do you mean with "touch type"?

Can you type with your eyes closed?

[Edit:] After which, can anyone else make sense of it? :)

Ah.. Yea I can do that.. I've looked on "Das Keyboard" too.. It's kinda awesome, but I think it's a bit too expensive..
