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 loose. 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. - Parv -- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
