Is the MacBook keyboard pretty easy to get used to?

    I am pretty sure I am purchasing one on Sunday, and I was wondering how the keyboard is after some use. I was a little awkward with it whenever I used it, though I've never used it more than 5 minutes. Did anyone else get this when playing with it, and did you get used to it?

    I got a MacBook last summer that my sister mostly uses. I'm used to my MacBook Pro's, but after I used it a few times, I got totally used to it. Now I can switch between and don't really even notice.

    It is very easy to get used to. I went from the old style apple keyboard with my iMac to the macbook and I like it so much now that I have bought the new style keyboard which has the same layout and key sytle. Took maybe 20 minutes for it to feel fine and then maybe an hour for it to feel normal.

    Thats good. I just feel it would be useless to get a laptop that has a keyboard you can't get used too!

    It's a good keyboard. Less pressure needed to strike keys than most other keyboards.

    I like the macbook keyboard but I wish apple would swap the @ and " keys.
