MicroCenter usually has quite a selection. Personally I used to have one of 
these: <>. 
URL goes to PS/2 version, but I swear I saw a USB version on the shelf 
the last time I was there. MicroCenter seems to be calling it an Adesso 
Mini-Media Keyboard. 

I can't quite put my finger on why I never adopted it, and eventually gave 
it away to someone. Perhaps the key pitch is too small, or it's the fact 
that ALT, CTRL, Left, Down, and Right are all smooshed together and you 
can't tell them apart with your fingers. YMMV. 

I take it you're looking for a full-time hacking keyboard, and not a 
keyboard for a console you use only an hour a week--so you should probably 
look for a keyboard that gets consistent good review in that role. 

Speaking of hacking keyboards, a lot of people like the Happy Hacking 
Keyboard < >, which has 
full size keys and no number pad. I've never seen one in person.
