@MissDaphne - I'm glad you like your new laptop! But did you ever consider that most laptop keyboard problems can be solved by plugging in a "proper" keyboard to your laptop? You can unplug it when you want to take the laptop somewhere.
It is a bulky solution and not for everyone, but I have resorted to it. Laptop keyboards can be a little uncomfortable to type on and I sometimes prefer to use an ergonomic keyboard when I happen to be at my desk. But I do like the convenience and portability of the laptop.
