I had this before when I was a teenager (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_M_keyboard) before my mom threw it out. I am trying to look for something similar but compact if possible but it must be at least tenkeyless.

If the price can stay under $100, that would be great, but I am willing to go a little over if its needed. Currently, I have a mac keyboard (full).

Thank you!

Edit: I found $99 keyboards here (http://www.elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=special&filter=spacesaver) but I have no idea which one to get./try... D:

The Model M's I know of have buckling spring switches and those have cherry switches which are different but nicer imo. Still much better than rubber dome by a long shot either way. If you want an affordable tenkeyless mechanical that is good, Coolermaster quickfire rapid keyboards are where it's at. They are manufactured by Filco so they are great quality. While the key caps are not PBT but ABS, the build is still the same, you can go wrong for the price.

In case you're wondering, filco makes some of the best cherry mechanical boards out there, my personal favorite.

You could also buy model m ssk (tenkeyless version of model m) but I don't think you could find one under 200$
