i am looking for a good keyboard, i want normal keys and some sort of light up feature (el wire maybe) any suggestions?

My old one was the one linked below, but the keys are poor, worse than laptop keys and i got so made after never being able to hit the backspace key i got rid of it for a normal keyboard. now i am in search for a new one, preferable with volume control and hot buttons. If you can't get something light up is there anything else you would suggest? Budjet is no more than $75 USD preferably (unless it is an amazing must have keyboard)

I personally like any keyboard from Logitech or Microsoft. They make pretty good keyboard/mouse combos.

Both companies came out with new keyboards. Pretty nice and should be in your price range.

As far as the type of mod you want to do, a Mac keyboard may be easier (and better looking lit up?) to work with. I think you just need to get an ADB to PS/2 connector to hook it up.
