Do you like your keyboard?

A couple of months ago my husband accidentally broke the cord to the keyboard we had so we've been using one that one of the kids gave to us a long time ago. I can't stand this thing!! The keys are hard to press so many times when I hit the space bar it does not advance and I have to backspace...which is another problem because I end up hitting \\\ or the insert button instead of backspacing. I think I'm going to buy a new one this weekend and throw this thing in the canal!

I use a laptop. I've had it for 3 years now. At first it was weird getting used to the keyboard. You wouldn't think it was that different from a desktop but it is. The mouse is the main difference. Now I really like it and don't like when I have to use a desktop keyboard.

Yeah, using my finger in that little box as a mouse is something I have never liked about a laptop but I sorta like the keyboard. My stepson had one when he was living here and I used it a couple of times so I guess I could get used to it, too.

My husband and son hate the mouse pad on the laptop. They both use the attachment thingy to put a real mouse on it. I like the little pad though. I guess I've just got used to it because I use it so much.

thank you for considering my response as your best response. I opt for the through and buy instead of repairing if it really troubles me a lot.

It is wise for you to throw the old one and buy a new one. You won't only be making some unwanted noises around but also sore your fingers. This will hamper your daily works and so it is better to replace it with a new one. The keyboards does not cost you much.
