i can't stand flat keyboards. I use an old HP keyboard that has deeper keys. I also sometimes use an old dell keyboard that has deeper keys. It is hard to find the buttons on flat keyboards. I end up pushing 2 buttons at once trying to press a key.

LOL. Even with the right hand?

I only use Mechanical Keyboards. More accurate and easily replaceable keys, easy to clean. In fact, I like my current one so much I did a YouTube review.

I didn't want to start a new thread for this but about touchpads on Windows laptops:

Do they all have two visible buttons? Some Apple laptops don't have the two buttons for the pad. You have to press near the left or right, which I don't like.

One of the first things I do is turn off the touchpad. I hate them.

Even those feel better than the flat ones:

I do like the raised keys keyboards more too.
I have the flat one with Sufrace, because of the slim appearance, but use the other kind with my desktop at home and at work. Its light grey, though...
I also prefer regular mouse vs a TrackPad.

I bought one of these for our server and liked it so well I bought another for my laptop. All my old favorites are dead and you can't buy them anymore. This is a great replacement.
