If you can type faster than radio or infrared signal transfers, you'll probably confuse the cpu itself even with wires. Bear in mind whatever caused you to mutter at any kbd in the past. Some of them seem designed to cause discomfort. Some of them seem designed to pretend that one should encounter a learning curve just to use a kbd. Some of them have surplusages of new-fangled keys that sooner or later w-i-l-l fail to do oddball tasks that are actually done faster another (traditional) way in the first place (e.g., speakers usually have little volume knobs, which usually work v. well and faster then fiddling with keys accomplishes). Any kbd loaded with mere marketing gimmicks is probably overdesigned and underengineered.
