Get either a CMStorm Quickfire Rapid with Cherry MX Blue or Green switches, I sampled some MX Blues at Walmart on a Blackwidow Ultimate 2013 keyboard, felt and sounded epic, however the Quickfire Rapid is built better and is cheaper. IBM Model M or UNICOMP Classic 101 Buckling Spring and Dell AT101 with ALPS CM Black switches are good choices too, however I really liked the sound and feel of the MX Blues when I sampled them yesterday at Walmart.

Quickfire Rapid with Blues or Greens would definitely be sweet to have in my lap while sitting back and doing whatever though.

Blues are good if you want a clicky that's easier to press, while Greens are closer to a Model M on actuation force.
