"Although I don't suffer from serious RSI, I've always favored ergonomic keyboards because they offer an easy way to force myself to keep my hands in the correct posture to avoid wrist pain. The problem though, is that most ergo keyboards are chunkier and taller, which is bad for people who like laptop-like low profile keyboards. Microsoft's Comfort Curve 3000 is a meshing of the two ideas.
Looking for an ergonomic keyboard that isn't very expensive? The Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 3000 looks like a good option - though only if you like wired keyboards. I don't, so this is off my shopping list solely for that reason. This is tangential, but it amazes me that people still buy wired keyboards...a modern wireless keyboard will run for 4-6 months on a single set of batteries (maybe longer), and who likes having cords anyway?
