Typing from the keyboard is slow, it can't keep up.

All the time?  The system could be indexing, doing Windows updates, or doing Anti Virus updates. All of these will cause typing to slow once in a while but not always.

If always, check for malware and viruses.

Is your memory working properly?  You are getting a VMware Workstation message that I do not get on my Windows 8 machine with 8 GB and VMware Workstation 11.

I would do a complete memory test for starters.

Go into MSConfig (the executable), turn off any unnecessary services/tasks that are running, and start narrowing it down.  Sounds to me like something is running in the background.  Were there any recent changes?  Is your keyboard wired or wireless/Bluetooth?  Does it happen in Safe Mode?  Usual process of elimination here.
