Choosing a Keyboard

Keyboards vary in feel as well as layout. Some are virtually silent. Others click every time you press a key. Some keyboards are mushy; others provide a slight amount of resistance. You'll have to experiment to see which kind is best for you.

Preferences for keyboard layout are also subjective. The illustration on pages 70–71 shows just one possible configuration for a PC keyboard. Another keyboard might have the function keys on the left, or at both the left and the top. Some keyboards have no separate cursor keypad, since the numeric keypad doubles as a cursor keypad. I always look for a large Backspace key (the one I use to correct mistakes as I type).
