_My inner geekiness was calling when I saw the recent surge in popularity of mechanical keyboards. What's so unique about them that warrants a 5x to 10x price premium over a regular, rubber-dome (99% of keyboards out there) one?

I had to find out, so I purchased one myself. I couldn't stop typing on the thing!

For some reason, typing on a mechanical keyboard is immensely satisfying, hearing that clicky sound and feeling the tactile feedback through my fingers.  On the other hand, it could also be due to post-purchase rationalization. :) Either way, it's a treat to my fingers as they spend more than eight hours a day typing away. They warrant the best keyboard the world has to offer. OK, maybe not the best, but darn close.
