I hate _all_ keyboards except the IBM P/S 2. It alone (in my experience)
possesses the same heft and spring that IBM offered on its Selectric. I
learned how to touch-type on those things and as such am a pounder,
especially when I type fast (100 wpm). In fact, I have discovered a large
difference in my typing accuracy between IBM keyboards and everyone else's.
I equate contemporary PC keyboards with Chiclet gum pieces. They are
shallow, wobbly, inconsistent, cheap. Apple's are the worst! I am still
trying to find someone who has "upgraded" from a P/S 2 who is willing to
part with the keyboard. Any takers out there?
