    I was skeptical at first. But after using it I found it very solid and well constructed. I really begin to like it and am pleased with my purchase.

    I'm using my Dell XPS 13 Ultra-book's. Although, I'm not necessarily the biggest fan.

    I tend to like the standard QWERTY's, something like this...

    Interesting that most of you have regular keyboards.

    Just a regular QWERTY style. Probably more unusual is that I do most of my programming in Fortran (90).

    I'm using the standard QWERTY keyboard that came with my VAIO, but I'm using the Dvorak layout instead of qwerty. I can type a good 20 wpm faster, and make less typos, but that's probably only because I never bothered learning qwerty properly. It took a few weeks to learn Dvorak, but I like it. It would be really nice to have something with an actual number-pad though.

    How would one change the layout?
