Here are the best features of a silicon keyboard:

  1. They are waterproof. So if you dump something on them they won't get ruined like a standard keyboard.
  2. The silicone keyboard is flexible and it can even roll up. This makes it easy to take with you and roll up in your backpack.
  3. They take a lot less room to store. Because they are flexible it makes them really easy to store. 
  4. They are very lightweight and this makes it nice to carry with you.
  5. If they happened to get dropped, they won't break. 
  6. They sell for as low as $8.99 plus tax and shipping if you order this online.
  7. They are wireless which makes them great for moving around and using with a laptop if you want.

Ordinary keyboard. 
  1. We all know that a standard keyboard comes in all different shapes and sizes.
  2. They are a bit larger.
  3. They weight more,
  4. They are either wireless, USB or PS2 models.
  5. If you spill something on the keyboard it can get destroyed.
  6. This keyboard will collect all kinds of dust and dirt.
  7. You can buy a low-end model for around $9 and the price goes up from there.

Depending on you and what you like. The keyboard basically do the same exact functions, except one is flat and sits on the desk and the standard keyboard has legs on it and can be elevated just a bit.

Actually the silicon keyboard is a special type of keyboard that is made with silicone materials while that of ordinary keyboards are made of plastic/rubber/aluminium or steel materials. In comparison between the silicone and the ordinary keyboard, the following can be said about them:

Prize; the price of the silicon keyboard is kind of on the high side than the ordinary keyboard ranging from $8-23 while the ordinary keyboard is between $8-20 depending on the material used.

Foldable wireless Bluetooth features; the silicone is very much flexible which makes it to be able to bend into folds while the ordinary jeyboard is inflexible mechanical device. The wireless Bluetooth feature associated with silicone keyboard can't be said about all the ordinary keyboards.

Waterproof feature; the silicone keyboard is water resistant meaning it can't be spoiled by water if touched by it while the ordinary keyboard is not waterproof which makes prone to damage by water.
