If you spend several hours a day in front of a computer, I can't begin to tell you what a difference a mechanical keyboard can make. In addition to better typing accuracy and speed, the clicky keys can just make you feel more productive. If you haven't taken the plunge yet, there's a great deal available today to get you started.

You might not be familiar with the Rosewill RK-9000, but it actually uses the exact same Cherry MX Blue key switches as the world-famous Das keyboard, widely-regarded as the best typists' keyboard still in production today. The biggest difference between the two keyboards is price; at $60, you could buy two of these Rosewills for less than a Das.

Most mechanical keyboards in this price range are targeted towards gamers, using less-clicky switches that are great for fast twitch gaming, but not as good for general typing. If you want to learn more, Lifehacker has a great rundown of all the different switches, or you could sample them yourself with this desk toy . [Newegg]

Update: Sold out at Amazon, but Newegg has price matched.
