Post 3+ Months Ago

hello all,
After using my A31 thinkpad laptop after 7 years I decided to go out and buy a Lenovo IdeaCentre K300. I'm very excited for this computer, but at the moment I do not have a keyboard for it. I was wondering if anyone knew of a keyboard that has a "laptop feel" to it? Using the laptop for so long has kind of spoiled me and I can't just type on a normal keyboard anymore.

I was looking at the Hp elite keyboard, this seems to come close to what I'm looking for but I would like to simply just plug it in (if they even make it) Problem with HP is this keyboard in particular seems like it might come apart quickly....

Any suggestions?

I had the same problem, going from using laptops almost exclusively, to using desktops.

I ended up breaking the first keyboard I got after the switch and had to go to Wal-mart at the spur of the moment to get a temporary replacement. I picked up one of these for about $10 and I'm still using it months later since it kinda grew on me the first night I had it.

If you go to Best Buy, their store-brand hardware is "Dynex". Pick yourself up a cheap Dynex keyboard and play with it for awhile. If you don't like it, return it. If you do like it, it will last you FOREVER. I bought one 4 years ago and mine is functioning just as well as the day I bought it.

Time will tell if its durable or not, but im thinking with a 5 year warrenty it should be fine......
