View Full Version : Touch typing on a netbook

31-08-2010, 09:55 PM
I'm looking at purchasing a netbook that is small and lightweight for when I go on holiday. I will mostly be using it for word processing, and backing up my photographs throughout the day. Long battery life is important to me, but so is being able to touch type comfortably.

Can any touch typist recommend a comfortable, easy to use netbook? Or even which ones to steer clear of!

Thanks in advance

I have a ASUS netbook and a netbook is pretty much a netbook.
Its difficult to touch-type, very difficult in my opinion.

A friend lives by his Asipre one, he says it is so much easier to type on than his old eee, best idea is to go into a shop and try different ones

I've got an EEE 1005HA. Have touch typed for the last 10yrs and don't have any problems.

I'm used to typing on different keyboards though. My one at home is a large gaming one, work is normal lenovo and I don't have any trouble scaling down to the EEE.

It's hard typing on your lap, but if you're on a hard surface you should get used to it in an hour or so.
