Re: Keyboard choices

Many of us have had long careers doing useful productive work without ever once needing to use a spreadsheet nor do repetitive calculator work nor do anything at all with a number pad. For me, number pads on a keyboard are dust collection devices and a waste of desk space. I view the presence of one as a negative feature to be avoided.

I'm with you on that, and use a tenkeyless keyboard on my ever-more-cluttered desktop. The saving of ~15 square inches of desk space makes the smaller keyboard a must, for me.

However, a 15.6" laptop has room for a numeric keypad (and any laptop has room for an overlaid keypad) and some users like them.
