You mean those Lenovo ads where the parachutist has to get the Lenovo to boot & deploy its chute before it crashes (to show how Lenovo laptops have the fastest boot time) are a lie? Has Apple tried the “boot to deploy parachute” test on a MacBook Air yet?
Joe, have you ever tried a thinkpad keyboard? It won’t make a difference if you only type with two fingers; but if you spend hours touch typing at time, this is the best laptop keyboard you can get. I had a Dell Latitude for over 3 years and when my company finally upgraded me to the ThinkPad X220, it was a huge difference.
Even worse are the now widespread chiclet or island style keyboards. The keys are far apart, they have no curved surface, and they are typically harder to press.
The best keyboard + trackpad is hands down the MacBook Air. Just visit the nearest Apple store to try it for yourself. The wedge shape leads to a comfortable wrist rest. The keys have just the right amount of travel and cushion that it’s almost effortless yet gives enough tactile feedback. And no worries about keys popping out.
