Notes From The Technoground: Where My Fingers Do The Walking With a Few Keyboards and Mice
Some keyboards and mice are built to impress and last, some are shrunk down to travel size for convenience, while others are one-trick ponies that don’t quite measure up.
I’m not fanatical about keyboards or mice, but I know plenty of folks who are. Some people are very particular about their keyboard’s key-travel distance, key resistance (or springiness), the spacing between keys, the size and shape of keys, backlighting vs. no backlighting, and so on. For mice, size and shape are important, as is button placement, right-handed vs. left-handed use, and so on.
