My favorite keyboard size is full sized. Having a numpad is just so much easier when having to input long strands of numbers!

I recently switch my full size keyboard for a tenkeyless keyboard, and I love it! Since I work by the computer all day as a programmer I really like the fact that I can have a shorter distance to my mouse when working. It might sound silly, but it makes me feel more productive not wasting time moving my arm over those numbers that I really don't need. I've never tried a 60% keyboard like the poker, but maybe that will be my next step? I might actually save 2 or 3 inches of arm traveling time... ;) Less is more?!

I prefer having a full size 104 key layout as I find myself using the number pad and function keys quite often.  I do however like keyboards with more than 104 keys for macro functions; they making gaming and other tasks a little bit easier and faster.

I have to say full size keyboards all the way!  

The main reason I am saying this is because of the num-pad. Some games use it to navigate or if you are in a dev console you might need it. BUT if you are using the keyboard for lets say emails, the smaller, the better I think.

My favorite keyboard design is a mini keyboard, preferribly mini, as they are easy to take around with me and are much better than using my laptop keyboard :D not only that but they are easy to mod and use for projects, there just awesum :3

Thanks for the giveaway :)
I prefer a 60% board as when I'm sneaking around in games it is a life threatening situation when I move my mouse and it hits the keyboard and shots are fired!

Never had the opportunity to use a 60%, smallest I've gone is TKL, but smaller is better for a small desk like mine where space is limited. Two monitors and an ITX desktop eat up space very quickly.

Never tried anything other than a full sized keyboard, because "Numpad". The idea of a smaller formfactor interests me for its portability and saving space on my desktop.

My first mechanical keyboard was the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate.... and I will never settle for anything less in terms of quality or size. The extra 5 macro keys are super useful not only during games, but for launching my favorite applications or utilizing my favorite functions with one single button. The tenkey number bad is a dream to use when doing anything in Excel that requires a lot of number work. This keyboard is the dream.

I've always been a sucker for keyboards that don't take too much space on me desk--so I've always used tenkeyless keyboards. I need space for my other peripherals man! (HOTAS, Mouse, Headphones, Mic, etc)

Personally I love having a numberpad on my keyboards. I find that I use it quite often and I typically like the full size best. However, I can see a 10-keyless board being useful for travel, such as with a laptop and I know it would be a lot better than the stock chicklet keyboard on any laptop.
