    I recently started using a 12" PB as my only computer, prior to that I had never really used a laptop. When I first got it, I found that I had to get used to the spacing of the keys compared to a full-size Apple desktop keyboard. My question is, for people who use an external keyboard with a laptop, do you find that you have to readjust when you switch from one keyboard to the other, and does it affect your typing?

    not really. my biggest problem is that the little raised marks on the f and j keys are different (ie raised dot in the middle of the keys on my Pro keyboard, but a little almost unnoticeable bar on the bottom of the keys on my iBook), making it a TAD harder to type without an accidental keyboard shift, but thats really it.

    I had to get used to the laptop when i 1st got it. But now I can use either with no adjustments at all.
