I'm still considering.  However, as I don't do development, I'm thinking it
may be overkill for me. I'm currently using a chicklet style, both at work
and home.   Home is a logitech solar powered--and kudos to them, I ran into
a battery not keeping power issue with the first one I bought, and they
sent me a replacement, telling me I could keep the semi-defective one.  
Work is a $10 Amazon basic.  I've gotten fairly used to the chicklet too.  

I probably do more typing at work, and one of the bosses is slightly
interested, so we're seeing if we can talk one of them into it.  :)
