FWIW, I just got a new Dell and was disappointed to discover that the
keyboard that came with it was more like that on a laptop, with tiny
function keys and alphanumeric keytops very close together. I jumped on
e-bay and discovered a flock of last-generation Dell keyboards that have
well-separated keys and normal-size Fkeys. The nomenclature is SK-8115
or L100, and they only cost around $25. They're also a bit smaller than
standard, but still have the numeric keypad which I remap with various
I like the keyboard very much because its keys have long travel and,
like you, I tend to hammer. Of course shipping to ZC4 may be another
matter, but it is worth the cautionary note, and maybe a try.
