I've been roaming the web for a laptop with an ergonomic Keyboard keyboard now for days only to find...NOTHING!
Why is this, is there no market for it. I find it strange, especially with the new 17" monsters that are out there is more than enough real estate to have a 'real' keyboard on it.

Dell, Toshiba, Sony, everyone else...

The Acer TravelMate 800 series has a curved keyboard. As far as I know, no other laptop uses the ergonomic model.

hi just wanna share this...

Ideal typing posture: Negative slope keyboard support

In the ideal typing posture both static and dynamic muscle loads are minimized. This posture is achieved when the keyboard is below seated elbow height and the keyboard base is gently sloped away from the user so that the key tops are accessible to the hands in a neutral posture. In this position the arms, shoulders, neck and back can relax, especially during brief rest pauses. Also, in this slightly reclined sitting position the low back rests against the lumbar support of the chair, the elbow angle is opened to promote circulation to the lower arm and hand, the abdominal angle, and the popliteal angle (behind the knees) are opened to promote blood circulation. The feet rest firmly upon the floor.

Hope this may help...
