    Has anyone else that has a new Apple keyboard or MacBook noticed an increased number of typos when using another type of keyboard?

    The number of typos I make when working on my office Thinkpad is easily 3x what it used to be before I had the Apple keyboard at home. Seems odd as hell, but the typos went up after I got the new keyboard and I know the key spacing is different on it, so I thought it might have something to do with it.

    Yeah I hate typing on other keyboards now.

    But I love my new aluminum one. :eek3:

    I like the aluminum keyboard too. Problem is that ~70% of my typing is on the Thinkpad.

    I actually hate using that keyboard. We have those at work and I refuse to use it for my MBP. I actually prefer the keyboard on the MBP. :o

    I'm obsessed w/ the new apple keyboard. I can type so much faster and accurately. I find I make more errors on my MBP one.

    never said there was. :dunno:

    I think it's the difference in key spacing that is fucking me up. I'm constantly hitting the gaps in between keys rather than the keys themselves.
