That’s when the keyboard started behaving very badly. It started skipping letters. And a few times, some of the keys even popped off!
I type fast. And furiously. I treat the keys and other features of the computer very badly; not intentionally of course. You can already see discoloration where I place my wrists. And I have worn the letter “N” off of many keyboards; The N on this one is standing strong so far.
The main reason I decided to get a new laptop was the keyboard. It cramped my style. It slowed down my blogging and my copywriting for others. Going back and sticking an “a” in blank spaces was getting to be a drag!
But I wanted more than just a keyboard. I sit in the dark once in a while, barely moving because I’m on a thought and rapidly typing. Meanwhile, the sun goes down and I don’t want to break my thoughts to get up and switch on some lights. Therefore, I decided I wanted a keyboard that lights up. A little extra for me.
The computer I ultimately purchased is a mid-range one and I ordered the higher quality speakers and higher quality resolution screen as well. Storage space is generous; great for all those photos I have!
And I am happy.
The keyboard serves as part of the lifeline to the internet and this particular one is in use as both a business machine and a playtime one. It’s in use from 7 in the morning until 10 or so at night and once in a while I let it rest while I go offsite. That’s a lot of use! It has traveled across the U.S. and travels around with me often.
