When the netbooks first came out, I really, really wanted the 10.1s to work for me. I tried for near 3 weeks to get used to one. I hated it.

Keyboards are important for me. Normally at home I have what is called a "typist" keyboard on my desktop. It clicks and clacks and the keys travel up and down, gives all sorts of feedback tactility and sound wise and is great. The one I liked best though I have had others is a Dell one. I am using one now that actually has 2 keys that don't really function properly and I replaced it with a new Microsoft one, but after a month, decided to just work around the bad key problem on the old Dell.

To do a control alternate delete, I have to left hand "span" a octave and a note to use the opposite "alt" key, and the squared off right bracket doesn't work so I have to copy and paste one if I need it. (In the old days, I would have just used a control code to get it, but I don't bother anymore.)

Thinking about it, maybe I will order a new one, but that is what I did with the MS one.
