I am seriously in love with my ergonomic keyboard. It is so much easier to type on the new ergonomic keyboard. I have noticed that my hands and brain begin to have clear division between left and right hand functions. There is less muddle between the two. I think that I will go buy myself a new ergonomic keyboard for home use at some point.
I have too many key-maps in my head at the moment. I have the ergonomic key-map for my office machine. Then, I have the non-ergonomic key-map for other computers in the country except my home computer, which uses the GB keymap because it was bought in the UK. So, I have to constantly switch between the different key-maps in my head.
I have also noticed that I can type more efficiently on an ergonomic keyboard. It takes a while to get used to the work division between the two hands but after that, it is far easier to type on an ergonomic keyboard. Finally, the QWERTY keyboards begin to make some sense. The two hands work separately off each other and hit only the keys that they are supposed to hit.
I wonder how much these ergonomic keyboards cost. I won’t pay and arm and a leg for them though. I know that the high-end ones cost something like RM300 each. I’d be happy to pay around RM50 for one. These things should not cost more than RM100.
