    Default New Keyboard for Desktop - not black

    HP Pavilion a1140a. Windows XP SP3: My HP PS2 grey keyboard has to be replaced. The store where I purchased the computer advise that all HP keyboards are black now. Can anyone advise a decent keyboard that isn't black. I've been looking on the internet and some look grey/ish but hard to tell and the info doesn't say (and yet the obviously black ones are labelled black!) If my computer model supports wireless would this be a better choice? thanks.

    Genius KB-06X.

    Last time I checked you could get it in white, looks like you still can, dirt cheap too.

    Thanks I'll check them out. Do 99% of users actually want black keyboards or have the manufacturers decided for them. There doesn't seem to be much choice. I haven't seen a pink one supergran, I like pink but not for a keyboard.

    We only ever use black keyboards now, they look so much nicer and don't show the dirt as much.

    The manufacturers have gone that way too.
