Laptop Users: Keyboard?

Posted 24 June 2009 - 09:49 AM

I just bought myself a new keyboard to use with my laptop, and now I'm curious, how many of you out there use a keyboard other than the built in one on your laptop?

My keyboard is a Logitech MK300 (with mouse), it's nice, but the keys are actually closer than a regular desktop keyboard. I'm happy with it, mostly because it has a ton of features (though most only work with windows) and it's wireless.

And if you are using an extra keyboard:

1. What do you use it for?

2. Do you use it all the time?

3. Is it wireless?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I've got an MSI Wind. I use the built in keyboard, but most of my friends complain about it. I have not problem with smaller keyboards.

I have a bluetooth keyboard at work that I use almost exclusively for all of my work...can't stand using the laptop keyboard because my hands are too large and there's no key response so it doesn't feel right.

I have pretty serious carpel tunnel in my wrist. Using a laptop keyboard causes it to flare up like nothing else. I NEED to use a regular full keyboard or I cant type for more than five minutes without severe pain lasting for hours or days.

It isn't wireless. I would like to get one; this way I can plug in my LCD tv into it and sit back on my sofa and mess around on the big screen.

I've got a Macbook Pro, and I don't think I've ever used a keyboard other than the built-in one - but one of the first things I did after getting it home was buy a bluetooth mouse. Trackpads are okay, but not as good as mice.

I use my keyboard built-in because I already have to carry lots of stuff with me to school.

I don't use an extra keyboard, but I really need one. Dell makes nice laptops, but this keyboard is awful and it is falling apart...

I wish I had an extra keyboard for my laptop, it gets annoying having to work with a miny keyboard whenever I use my laptop. I enjoy being able to spread out with the full sized one on my desktop.

I always used an external keyboard with my laptop. I use a MS Ergonomic keyboard with my desktop.
