ill upload a pic soon of my keyboard - it's a logitech s520 if that helps - i've also got a Benq keyboard which makes a clicky noise when you type and i got an ibm keyboard somewhere which sounds like a chopping board and a microsoft multimedia keyboard

actually dw i looked into my s520 and it was a rubber dome, the benq was a scissor and the microsoft was a rubber... i'm going to look for my ibm

ohh god i realised i sold my ibm keyboard lol. it looked like this keyboard
That's not a mechnical keyboad, if that's what you're getting at.

Oh yeah laptop keyboards especially. Not only are the keys a pain to get back on, but you can break something if you just blindly pop them off like you would a desktop key. My point was that some of the low profile desktop keyboards are probably similar.

seems like i don't own a mechanical keyboard =\\

but i swear i have had a mechanical keyboard in my household before... it looked like this the brown "+" it was probably on my family's first pc


would the difference b/w a scissor switch and rubber dome be significant?
if so - ima steal my sister's keyboard until i find a mechanical keyboard

Scissor switches employ rubber domes to register keystrokes.

It's a matter of preference and the switches themselves. Like with any type of switches, there will be ones that you really like and ones you can't stand. Sure you can get into which is technically better, but comfort > all.

Odd question but what type of switch is for me if I prefer switches like Omron switches like in arcade machines?

Those are microswitches, and if you want a keyboard with them you'll have to build it on your own. Read this.

Got the Steelseries 7G today. Amazing. Easily the best keyboard I've ever used. I made a review on it in a Finnish forum, google translated it if someone wants to take a peak
