When it comes to keyboards, I am super picky!

When I got my first computer, I got attached to its keyboard (The Honeywell 101WN model). In fact, I kept the keyboard until I bought a new computer with no PS/2 ports on it.

It was a sad moment when I realized that I have to move on and find a new keyboard.

While I could have bought a PS/2 adapter, I needed the “Windows” key which is available on newer keyboards.

I think a big majority of programmers love their keyboards and their layout, just like me.

I am very picky when it comes to keyboards. If I don’t like the keyboard, I might not like the whole laptop for instance.

It took me a while to get used to the old MacBook Pro’s keyboards but just after I started liking their keyboards, Apple changed the mechanism to the butterfly mechanism and made the keyboards repulsing in my opinion. I won’t buy a new MacBook because of their keyboards. The same goes for Microsoft Surface laptops. I did not like their toy-like keyboards and therefore won’t buy, endorse or use a Microsoft Surface book or laptop . The most pleasant keyboards so far are the IBM / Lenovo keyboards. That’s why all of my PC laptops are a Lenovo X or T series.

  1. I use a Dell Latitude at work and so far the keyboard is okay, it’s not perfect. I keep hitting pageup and pagedown keys by mistake but I can work with it
