Review 2 for ThinkPad Edge E520
disappointed with keyboard layout
Date:March 2, 2012
"I bought the E520 after owning an IBM Think Pad R52 for many years. I do a lot of word processing. Not much of a tech-y. teh E520 (which I orderred custom-built) is of course much faster, the design is very nice. I wanted something sleeker, which it is.
Two problems with the key board: 1. the placement of the DELETE button: it is now a very thin key in a row above the square keys and next to the INSERT button. so I am constantly hitting the INSERT button instead of the delete. Much time spent correcting a correction. The number pad on the right side is unnecessary and i wish I had noticed that before I bought it. 2. the "r" key seems to stick such that I am always getting 2 r's. I haven't called on this.
3. the size of the laptop is deceiving. I orderred the 15 inch. but it doesn't fit in my computer roller case (for traveling) because it is really 17 inches across, too wide for it.
i always liked the feel of the IBM think Pad keyboard and this one is still good. but I wish I had noticed the layout before I bought. Mine is only 4 months old. the machine itself seems to be very good. so far."
