Hardware, Embedded Systems It's funny how while software changes so fast, and many hardware components evolve at ridiculously fast paces (processors, memory, hard drives), the keyboard has remained largely unchanged over the years - until recently, that is. Even Lenovo has now buckled under the pressure, switching to a chiclet-style keyboard for ThinkPads - while also removing the SysReq key.

I've always been a fan of the Thinkpad keyboards because of their feel and quality. They also are one of the few that have a full-size Enter key which provides much more satisfaction when hitting it than a wimpy little half-size one.

I recently was given a Dell Latitude E6400 at work and I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and feel. The joystick has nothing on the Thinkpad's, but the keyboard is actually _really_ good.
