I've been through my share of crappy keyboards until I arrived at the best one I could find. It's the Dell USB multimedia keyboard. It's not backlit, but the feel is great, the keys are super quiet and the multimedia controls work the way I want them to: http://www.amazon.com/Dell-SK-8135-Multimedia-Computer-Keyboard/dp/B002G9OZXG I found a supplier on ebay who sells refurbed ones for $14 each. I currently have 3 at home and am considering getting another (for the kids).

I use computers mainly to develop software. Anything less than a 15" display is unusable. I got a 15" touch laptop to test my Win8 apps. I truly hate the win8 touch interface and enormous waste of screen real estate to maintain the "metro" aesthetic. Windows 8 makes things even worse with the constant flipping between sane mode and metro mode. Using 2 monitors for Win8 dev is almost tolerable as it allows you to keep visual studio from flipping out to tiles. Sorry Jeff, but I don't understand your attraction to the SurfaceRT. It's Windows 8, but worse and that's not saying much. Maybe I'll change my mind about Metro, but I doubt it. The more I use it, the less I like it. Metro and Windows 8 seem like a lame excuse on Microsoft's part to show that they're innovating. Change for the sake of change. The user experience is terrible, the use of touch is unnecessary and the display real estate is completely wasted.

Title should by changed to "The one button mistake". Apple tries to be the friendly, accessible technology company, but really goes to far by forcing the use of a single button. What's probably worse than making their mistake is the arrogance of not fixing it.
