For the most part, mechanicals use switches for the keys rather than springs. The end result is simply a much better "feel" and response from the keyboard.

If you're at all thinking about getting one. Get one. They're worth every cent.

Rubber domes, not springs. Springs are what mechanical switches use.

I think I know what you are talking about, the rubber part on the bottom side of the keys.

Back in my day... :)

Actually on my last cheap ass keyboard they were just springs. I know because I remember the headache after popping a key off. :D

Not sure if the das Keyboard is still doing some things for students, but try checking it out. I have a das Keyboard and it's awesome.
