    Hello Everyone, I've recently purchased the Uni MBP--15", and the keyboard is driving me nuts! It seems set so far back and is hard to get used to, anyone else with this experience? thanks

    Do you have the 15 or 17"? Not a problem for me on the 15...

    It does not bother me on my PowerBook and I do not see how it could be possibly any further back on anything.

    i think what you are feeling is the edges of the computer. that may be what is bothering you. but for me it's fine

    Yeah I get what you mean, the keyboard is set almost at the hinge, and you get an unusually large wrist rest on the notebook. I like it though, I got used to it the day I bought it.

    I prefer it/just too used to it.

    Gives space for a larger trackpad too.

    I enjoyed UMBP keyboard very much! It is the best laptop keyboard I've ever used!

    What are you comparing it to? The old aluminum style mbp, or a PC notebook?

    I actually had a 15" UMBP and keyboard positions/wrist rests were a bit odd for me. However now using the 17" UMBP the larger wrist rests work better for me. I hate cramped spaces to type or work in so very happy with the 17" but did have some issues with the way the 15" was laid out.
