I happen to be currently using Toshiba Satellite A105-40xx (work
computer), which cost around $800-900 from Circuit City or Best Buy
(US chain stores).  After few weeks of usage, the keyboard turns out
to be rather crappy.  When i type -- my typing speed is around 25
wpm & not much of a touch typist -- the keys (more likely the
spring) whine as if they need lubrication & have become rather

On another Toshiba Satellite, about a year old (as overheard from a
coworker; I used it for 2-3 months), Fn key has become so
ridiculously loose it behaves like a loose leaf paper covering a
sauce pan.

So, be mindful of Tecra's keyboard.

OTOH, two year old IBM Thinkpad T42's ($1600) keyboard is working
wonderfully; five old Dell Inspiron 5000e's (a thousand some dollars
at the time) keyboard is still better than above mentioned new
Toshiba Satellite.
