Ergonomic "split" keyboards are now more commonplace than ever. It's difficult to tour through a company without seeing at least one in a cube or office. Have you tried one? The key thing to remember is that you likely won't find a split keyboard either comfortable or functional during the first few minutes you use it, particularly if you've never used one before. However, if you invest a few days of regular use into one, you'll probably begin to wonder how you ever lived without it.
Strange as it may sound, ask if you can borrow one from a colleague or store to try for a week or two before you buy a specific model. That way you can find one that you'll know you'll like in the long run.
