    Actually something to get excited about. Limited interfaceness is a huge laptop problem for me and they often make it very hard to touch type on. I could definitely go for some proper keys on them.

    Chiclet keys ruined laptops for me, when they all went after the Apple bandwagon. The spacing is awful and unnatural. I was happy pre chiclet as it was more like a proper keyboard.

    So long as it doesn't suffer durability issues such as Apple's previous butterfly switches, this new Cherry standard is looking promising
