when you go for the up or right arrow, don't you ever miss and hit page down?

and when you hit up, do you ever miss and hit shift?

Naw, I don't. Course that's 'cause I'm using IBM Thinkpad keyboards. :)

and use it on the dell X1, can you?

can you be more specific about changing the keyboard.. compatibility etc. if that's what you mean.

The Dell keyboard and IBM keyboard look like they have very different dimensions as well.

I can't say I've ever had a similar problem on any of my laptops (Thinkpads, Macs, Toshibas and Dells). I just type on...very few typos at this point.

well, toshiba and ibm do often have good keyboard design of the up arrow separate from those other keys.. like SHIFT. And I know smaller laptops will often have a cramped keyboard.

obviously there are going to be people with laptops where the up arrow is separated from other keys properly. I'm not asking about that!

My Thinkpad keyboard is attached to a T42 Thinkpad. :)
