  • Maybe this is caused by too many Use Perl; entries? Now, seriously, try doing some gymnastics off-keyboard. Also, try not to work too much in laptops. The small keyboards don't help.
    • If your laptop has a good keyboard, typing on it should not be any worse than typing on a normal keyboard. However, if the keys are smaller than normal or if they don't "feel right", get an external keyboard for using it any longer than a few minutes. And consider getting another laptop, and next time don't just look at the specs, but **TRY** a used model first, for at least a day.

      However, because laptop screens are not detachable and the screen should be located much higher, you should get at least either an external keyboard or screen. A keyboard is much cheaper.

      My laptop has a great keyboard. It's easier to work long with the laptop keyboard than with any external one. (But that is because all external laptop keyboards that I have encountered so far are bad ones.)

      Compaqs, Acers, Packard Bells, HPs, etc... all come with awful keyboards. IBM has the best, Toshiba and the more expensive Dells come second. All IMHO, and not tested with the latest models.

      Macs have keyboards that feel very good while typing but still start to hurt sooner than I'm used to. I have no idea how this is possible.
