Why I Feel Like Throwing My Keyboard Down to the Floor and Stomping It
Either I’m being punished for scrimping on my keyboard or I got spoiled by my laptop. As I write this, I’m doing my best to stay cool and keep my anger down. For some reason, one typographical error accompanies every phrase I type, and I believe it that has a lot to do with my keyboard.
My desktop keyboard, a no-name afterthought that cost around $5, seems to lack the spring and responsiveness of my laptop keyboard. There’s nothing wrong with the keyboard, but there’s something awfully wrong with the feel of it. My fingers for some reason can’t go on automatic, and I end up tapping on the wrong area of the keyboard with disturbing frequency.
I’m convinced a better keyboard is called for. My irritation is primarily frustration with having to be more careful with my fingers; that means less focus on actual writing. I’ve put up with this keyboard long enough!
I’d better wrap up this post soon—my patience can’t take it any longer. In the meantime, what keyboard do you think I should get next time I go shopping? Does price really matter here?
Feel free to answer those questions by leaving a comment below. Mouse and keyboard combos are of course valid suggestions, and it would be great to have wired and wireless options. Tap furiously on your keyboards and answer away!
