Anyway, a lot of my friends wonder how I can type on a keyboard that doesn't have any lettering on it and they don't get that I just know where the keys are. You'd be surprised at how many people who would normally try to use my computer (at a LAN or something) and turn away because they can't type on my keyboard as they normally just hunt and peck their way around. I love the feel of each key as it moves through its motions as well. You hit the nail on the head saying that typing on rubber domes is a chore. I'm a TA for an Intro to Computer Science course at my University and all the computers in the labs use the standard Dell rubber domes; they are literally the worst keyboards I've ever used - the key action is way too mushy and completely lacks any response of any kind.
tl;dr - everyone should own a Das Keyboard Ultimate S because it just looks cool
I feel left out, I only got a professional.
Now I kinda wish I got an Ultimate. The only reason I went for the professional is because I don't know all the buttons on the numbers on the top of the keyboard. Otherwise, I don't ever look at the keyboard. But this thing is so awesome, I don't even know how to describe it. I agree with you 100%; typing on this thing is a treat.
