EuduraPro keyboard: old-fashioned or smart

ibm%20keyboard.jpg

Call me a diehard, but I think Iíll be going to my grave using an EnduraPro keyboard.

To those of you who are old enough to remember what typing on an IBM typewriter or an original PC keyboard, youíll know exactly why I stand where I do. To the young ones out there, it means typing on a keyboard that uses IBMís proprietary buckling spring technology. Yes, these are the ones that make the comparatively loud clickety-clack noise with every keystroke. But they are also the ones that give a more positive response, which is proven to improve speed and accuracy and reduce fatigue.

The EnduraPro, offered by Unicomp, comes in several varieties, including models with integrated trackball and point stick devices. Most computers today come with cheap, "throw in" keyboards. Youíve been quick to upgrade your processor to bigger and better. Why not do the same for your keyboard?

I'm with Brian on this one. You can't do any better than a buckling spring keyboard.

Nine:

I learned to type on an old-fashioned typewriter and ever since then I have only had good results (when I'm on a roll I tend to type rather fast) while typing on a keyboard with a good "clickety-clack". I'll definitely keep this post in mind when looking for a new keyboard because it's sometimes hard to find one that works for me :)
