    Talk about a simple and space-saving keyboard! The Micro RK9000 from Rosewill is a super-compact yet sturdy mechanical keyboard for gamers. The keyboard only features the main cluster of conventional keyboards, with just 66 keys, but some of them double up as function keys with a macro button pressed or activated. The keyboard is said to use an unknown Cherry MX switch, a sturdy fiberglass PCB, USB and PS/2 connectivity (over adapters), and a silvery brushed-aluminum body.

    This would be great for kiosks.

    I've been using the std. model Rosewill RK-9000 keyboard for awhile and IME it's surprisingly good, unlike many Rosewill products.

    Hmm I think I like...except for the "unknown" part re. the switch type. Pretty important info, that is...

    Why not? It's ideal for input devices on kiosks to be durable and very minimalistic. This seems to offer both of those features.

    It's not really that "durable"... you can easily pull out the keycaps and destroy the switches, not to mention it's insanely expensive for such an application.
    For a kiosk you need waterproof vandal switches and alike.
