Laptop buying advice: Keyboard selection


 LaptopMag posted an Article entitled "5 Things to Look For in Your Next Notebook Keyboard." Most important is the importance of a good palm rest, where LaptopMag noted "Make sure that both of your wrists fit comfortably on the palm rest. If your hands hang off the edge, your shoulder muscles have to lift the entire weight of your arms as you type, possibly resulting in shoulder pain and injury." Of my two laptops, it looks like one fails in this regard. This is something most of us do not think about when selecting a new laptop, and looks like it is something we  should consider. Ironically, the newer HD 16:9 screen resolutions now almost universally adopted will make getting a a good keyboard harder.
