The key action is wonderful, but the keyboard layout issues are just too much for me. The positioning of the navigation keys in relation to the right hand shift key is just too awkward for my hands and even after just a short typing session it causes a lot of discomfort when I have to reach for the shift with my right little finger. I also keep hitting the up arrow key or the forward slash on a regular basis when I want a capital.
The Razer is a lovely piece of kit, and maybe for somebody with larger hands and longer little fingers it might be just the ticket, but my hands are small and my little fingers are weirdly shorter than I'd realised.
So it's back to my Zagg Slimbook. Weighs a ton, and the key action isn't as light as the Razer, but the layout is much more comfortable and mirrors the layout of my Macbook. I've got the Smart keyboard too, which is okay in an emergency but with a heavier key action, no backlight and no choice of angles.
A couple of questions portiacosta:
1. Is the experience of using the Razer keyboard a loud experience compared to say the experience on old macbook?
2. Is there any way to remove the keys, without violating warranties? On traditional mechanical keyboards, it's rather easy to remove the keycaps? The thing is, I type with a dvorak configuration from a hand injury, so I need to swap keys.
3. Isnt' the zagg slimbook, one of those foldable mini keyboards? Why should it weigh a ton? Unless I'm mistaking the product you are referring to.
