Nothing like the Solid Clicking of a KeyTronic keyboard, or the original IBM keyboards from the 80s...those suckers had a metal body and keys that sounded (and felt) like 84 Bic pens clicking under your finger tips! After an hour of using these keyboards, you knew it! Talk about a workout!
I still have one of those KeyTronic keyboards and still use it sometimes when I feel nostalgic! But I've since going to the ergonomic, split keyboards...I just wish they made them for Laptops! And don't even get me started on Netbook keyboards! What are these people thinking!

When it comes to keyboards, I really like the chiclet keyboards of the G4 Powerbooks.

Aside from that, the early Mac 2 keyboards.  

Someday I will get my Mac Plus going so I can have that nice hollow "clung clung clung" sound as I type.  :)   Not a good keyboard, but the early days of the Mac had some distinct sounds.
