[CQ-Contest] Keyboard for Contesting

I know this subject has been covered before, but the market moves so 
rapidly that data more than a year old is apt to be obsolete.

Here's my problem.  I just got a new Dell computer for the shack.  I am 
a hunt and peck typist with a high fat-finger rate.  The previous 
keyboard had nicely separated keytops, while the new one is much more 
like a laptop.  As a consequence, my error rate is way up.  I can't use 
the old keyboard because it was PS/2, and my KVM switch doesn't 
recognize it with an adapter.

What I'm looking for is recommendations for a wired or wireless USB 
keyboard that has widely separated keys like an 8-year-old Dell.  Please 
drop me a note off the reflector, and I'll summarize the responses I get.
