I forgot to include a picture:


I mention the IIGS keyboard because it offers a much more pleasant long-haul typing experience (w/Alps keyswitches) compared to most of the throwaway keyboards offered today.  In your own case, I suspect the short key throw of your present keyboard might be what's causing the fatigue during extended use (just a guess).

The Apple Extended Keyboards (I and II) are nice, too, but they take up a lot of desktop real estate, and I don't know how much space you have to play with.  However, if you have a lot of space and/or you make frequent use of function keys, an Apple Extended might be the way to go (as an earlier poster mentioned).
