Typing experience difference on low profile and high profile keyboards, need some help in buying one

I want to buy a mechanical keyboard and I came across the low profile mechanical switches. I have tried the normal mechanical switches in near by stores, but could not get my hands on a low profile mechanical keyboard. Could someone tell me the difference in typing experience between a Low profile and a regular mechanical keyboard? My only requirement is a great typing experience, whether it is a low profile or a normal keyboard.

"great typing experience" is pretty subjective. 

with tall key caps i tend to fat finger more often than i do with low profile or membrane keyboards. your mileage may vary.

By great typing experience I mean the keystrokes must be good unlike the laptop keyboards. I have read that the low profile switches are very similar to laptop keyboards and so do not give the experience of a mechanical keyboard

So, I need someone to tell me the exact difference that one can feel while typing on both regular and low profile mechanical keyboards. I do a lot of coding and report writing. Gaming once in a full moon perod.

very similar in terms of depress length, maybe. in terms of spongey feeling, no.

no mechanical board regardless of height, could possibly be as spongey as laptop membranes.

What is the difference between tactile response for brown switches and blue switches? for example the Gateron or any other switch type

are you looking to know at what depth the switch gives tactile feedback? in the form of resistance, pass-bump, or bottoming out?  
what do YOU like to feel most? 

laptops, for example, are all bottom-out, with no good resistance or pass-bump. (pass bump is what I call it when a key gives you that affirmative feedback that it's pressed, without being totally bottomed out.)

can you tell me which one do you prefer as a keyboard, the low profile one or the the regular one?
Also does the low profile keyboard offer decent resistance and a good pass-bump? 

Can you tell me the experience of using both regular and low profile keyboard?
