    They say that scissor keyboards are way better...chiclets seem to be rather unresponsive.

    I like the spacing on chiclet keyboards (each key feels more individual) but it takes a lot of getting used to. I don't like how it has a spongy/soft tactile feedback. I also don't like how most chiclet keyboards have flat faced keys.

    I like how crisp it feels to type on a scissor switch. I don't like how tall the keys usually are.

    You'll get used to whichever one you have. I don't really mind either.
