Back in the day when I attended High School, I was known to play a little football. For us Football players, Typing was a good choice because the teacher was dating the High School Football Coach.
So we did unusually well when enrolling and taking her class. Little did I know that I was actually going to learn to type. I also attended both my Junior and Senior years in her class.
The typing has helped emminsely and I have to say that my 15 year old can now beat my 70wpm and he is self taught. Incredible.
As you may know, I just putchased a ASUS 1000HE from Amazon.com. There were issues with the keyboard the older models had. This new model has a "chicklet" style keyboard. I have also heard it refered to as the "island" style, where each key is surrounded by either plastic or some other material. But the keys are raised above the keyboard surface as little islands with equal spaces on either side.
So I am learned once again - MAC's have the chicklet style keyboard and I am pretty fast on those as well. I however, have a Di-Novo Edge keyboard from Logitech and am very happy with it, but I am thinking of scoring a mac keyboard, they work with PC's and are pretty cheap and USB 2.0 powered.
I love the Di-Novo Edge - but it is rechargable and I concern myself that if it fails I won't have a back up.
Just pouring my mind out on paper.. Anyone have any input...
BTW, the typing instruction was easy on the eyes as well :-)
