Kensington SlimType Keyboard
Released February, 2008
The Pros:Short travel is comfortable and makes for crisp, definite keystrokes. Plug-and-play across OS platforms. Solid build construction does not move during use.
The Cons:Some buttons (alt, ctrl) tend to lose sensitivity over time. Unconventional layout of PgUp key section takes getting used to. Alt and Windows keys are larger and more awkward than previous generations.
Kensington's SlimType Keyboard comes in two different varieties, a PC and Mac version, and is a low-profile keyboard based on laptop designs. The keys use scissor switches to provide responsive and crisp typing, and there are intuitive hotkeys that control various forms of media.

There are also sleep and calculator modes, and respective hotkeys for each. The keyboard connects via a single USB connection. Note that both versions are in fact compatible with both platforms (Mac and PC), and the main difference is that the Mac version has a slightly more stylized frame and is white, to match most Apple computers.
