It’s all about the keyboard and trackpad.
I have to setup windows laptops for people at work about once a month. Every time I do, I rage out over these inferior keyboards and trackpads. I also run Windows on my MacBook so I know it’s not the OS – it’s the garbage hardware.
I mean, nearly every laptop has an expanded keyboard and shifts the track pad to the left. The keys feel like they’re made of paper and the trackpad doesn’t consistently click properly. How in the world do people use these computers?! Seriously! I have to contort my body just to type on them.
I know there’s been an issue with the latest keyboards but I’ll take Apple’s broken design over Acer’s or Dell’s or HP’s widely used designs.
Granted, most of the laptops I’m setting up are sub-$1000. I don’t recall ever using a $2,000+ Windows laptop. If anyone can suggest a laptop with a good keyboard and trackpad I’m very interested in checking it out (for work).
