This is an update to one of my previous posts Netbook or Laptop: Which Should You Choose? Well…actually it’s a confession of sorts. I’m coming clean about leaving my netbook in the dust, so to speak, and moving to a laptop. I just can’t deal with that small keyboard any longer. I’m a pretty good typist normally, but with the netbook I was constantly hitting wrong keys because of the small size of the keyboard which caused me to hold my hands in an unnatural position…no, nothing kinky, mind you.
I will say that I did mention in the previous post that the size of the keyboard was a problem for me and to try it out before buying. But I still feel a little guilty that I wasn’t stronger on that point.
What size laptop did I get? A 17 inch screen machine with a keyboard so large that in addition to a standard size keyboard; it’s got a numeric keypad! Yes, it’s heavier and it takes up my whole lap, but my hands are much more comfortable…and I’m much more happy.
