I really want this machine, but several people who reviewed it mentioned that the keyboard was unsatisfactory in several ways: It over-all just had a cheap, flimsy feel to it., The keys feel mushy and indistinct., The keys have no indentations so that your fingers have a tendency to slip off of them., There is a problem with a lag when typing fast, causing misspellings and typos.
There were some tweaks suggested to overcome the lag problem, but one person said that you would just have to use an external keyboard to be able to type comfortably and another person said they were going to return the machine altogether because of the unfriendly keyboard.
I enjoy games and the more speed and the better the visual, the more I enjoy them, but I also do a lot of writing and so the keyboard is important to me for that purpose, as well.
I would appreciate more opinions on just the usability of the keyboard. I'm otherwise completely sold on this computer.
Thanks to anyone willing to help me past this stumbling block.
(What I really want is for someone to tell me (truthfully) that it is a perfectly functional keyboard and that it will hold up to writing a novel as well as it holds up to the most maxed out games.)
