    I actually just bought my natural keyboard a few weeks ago. It took me a little while to get used to it, but now I love it.

    Notice how the alphanumeric keys are split apart. It allows for a natural form and helps against carpal tunnel.

    Ah, ok. When i first viewed this thread, those pictures did not load. I thought it might have been that, but I thought no one used those anymore...

    Un-natural

    Ooops. I made an error in voting. At first I thought natural keyboards were the straight ones until I saw James's pictures. I've got un-natural keyboards all over my house. I ought to get a new one.
