    Hi,
    I need to chose new laptop to replace my old Asus A6Km. I'm interested
    in two models: Dell 1558 and Lenovo G 56o. Both have the same CPU and
    other elements are similar. The point of my interesting is to have good
    keyboard, because I'm going to write my PhG dissertation on this
    machine. I'd like keyboard not to be flexible, which is very common for
    new laptops. I'll be grateful for any suggestions about these two
    laptops, especially about keyboards.

    I don't know about those particular machines, but I've just been
    involved in helping someone choose a new laptop.

    She had been using an Acer and a Lenovo for her business. With her, I
    looked at a range of machines from HP, Lenovo, Acer and Toshiba and I
    have to say that I favoured Lenovo for build quality.

    She is a trained touch typist. On her old Acer, I had replaced the
    keyboard because she wore right through a couple of the keys. In the end
    she decided on a new Acer mainly because she liked the price and key
    layout. She had never been able to adjust to the position of the
    Lenovo's Ctrl and Del keys.

    I've happily used Acer, Lenovo, HP, Toshiba and Dell machines and only
    had problems with one Advent-badged MSI machine with a bendy keyboard
    that I believe was not clipped into place properly. I have no problem
    with the different layouts, probably because I'm a 2-finger amateur
    typist.

    I really think you need to try these machines for yourself, which I know
    is difficult with these manufacturers. I'm typing this on a Lenovo, and
    really like the keyboard on this and my earlier Lenovo-made IBM..
