Razer BlackWidow Stealth Keyboards Keep the Mechanical Keys, Ditch the Noise

You know what's great? Mechanical keyboards -- what with their satisfying clicks. You know what's less awesome? Having to listen to that obnoxious racket all day. Razer claims you can have your cake (in this case, tactile feedback) and eat it too (blessed silence!) with its BlackWidow Stealth Editions.

These are, more or less, the same boards that debuted last August, but with quieter switches and a matte finish. Both models are available now, with the same programmable keys and on-the-fly macro recording, while the Ultimate version adds "extreme anti-ghosting" to its already impressive noise pwnage. The standard model will run you a cool $80, while the Ultimate weighs in at a hefty $140.

When my parents bought a new computer I was the one who primarily used it. I hooked up a 1980's IBM keyboard to it. My parents actually forbid me to use that keyboard because of the noise it made... I loved that keyboard.

I don't mind the sound of a computer keyboard, I also use typewriters occasionally and a computer keyboard is very quiet by comparison

too much to spend on a typing instrument when one that clicks is less than 10$ at a dollar store.
