Cannot understand why they still put that crappy keyboard on such a big machine.

It may be okay for surfing. but I type a lot, and the overlap between Home/End/PgUp/PgDb and 4 arrow keys drives me crazy. That account for half of the reason for me to shop for a new laptop.

I don't understand most of what they do with keyboards. I'm not bothered by the feature you mention, but I've rejected many a deal this season because most seem to have the number keypad. I don't like those, don't like how it shifts the typing area left of center. But at the same time a lot of people like it. Would be nice if there were more choice with both options. And so many laptops don't have a backlit keyboard. I guess you can expect that on a laptop for under $400, but it turns up on many that are $600 or more. It's just one of the hard parts about getting a new laptop. I'd upgrade a lot sooner each time I start thinking about a new laptop if I could get the keyboard I want.

To hit Home/End/PgUp/PgDn on that keyboard, I have to hold down "Fn" then press an arrow key.... Okay, this may sounds like nothing. but think how to do "Control + Home" (move cursor to beginning of the line) or "Ctrl + Shift + Home" (select from here to the beginning of the line - you need to hit 4 keys - with my fat fingers on such a tiny keyboard)... and sometimes I have to do that hundreds of time a day.

At least IBM Thinkpad doesn't have this issue.

For people who deal with numbers a lot, such as finance or accounting, the numeric pad will help them a lot.

10/100 Ethernet instead of gigabit is a bummer. But TN instead of IPS screen kills it for me.
