View Full Version : Anyone find the return/enter key too small?

Now I know this isn't exclusive to MacBook Airs, but since I have one I've found that sometimes when I typing I accidentally miss the enter key, and hit just towards the right side of the enter key. I love the keyboard, but I really just wish it was a little bit wider. It just seems too thin for my liking. Anyone else do this? And I have small hands too so...

Nope. MBA's have the best keyboard of any laptop I've ever owned.

Yep, that definitely was an issue for me in the first week or so.
You'll get used to it.

(A much more serious problem is the mysterious difference between the US and rest-of-world keyboards here. What were they thinking…)

Yeah I have the UK keyboard layout so it's L shaped, which I'm so grateful for. And I've had this for like 6 months and I still find myself mis-judging the distance of the return key and hitting the side of the metal. So annoying...

Is a non issue. Humans have an uncanny ability to adapt to a new environment and keyboard layout after a while. After driving a rental for a few days, I go back to my old car and it feels weird the first day back.

Mine has a L-shaped (German Layout) enter key, but I often press FN instead of the CTRL key. ;)

While I don't hit past the return key, I sometimes hit the shift key instead. It only happens very occasionally, so I think I can deal with it.

My old MBA had a German keyboard so the return key would be L-shaped (an upside-down L with the wider part being at the top). So I was actually used to just hitting the upper part of the return key because of it being wider and less likely to miss. Now I have got a MBA with a US keyboard and I admit it took some time getting used to it. But now, after about 2 weeks I"ve grown used to the smaller key and it's no issue anymore.

Nope, the return key is perfect.
