    Do any of you have large hands and find the keyboard cramped on the 11". Granted this won't be my main machine and granted it's mainly as something portable to bring with me wherever I go.

    I was at Worst Buy and tried the 11" out and I was standing up but it still felt odd typing on it.

    At the same time I'd feel more comfortable carrying around the 11" vs the 13"

    I don't see how it can be cramped, seeing as it's a full size keyboard.

    It was most likely the weird angle i was type since I was standing up.

    All Mac laptops now use full-sized keyboards, like the ones that ship with the desktop iMacs. The only difference you will see on the 11" model is the top level of Fn (Function) keys are slightly shorter in size...but the key sizes, spacing and widths are all the size of a normal desktop keyboard.

    This is an improvement from sub notebook days of the past, such as the PowerBook Duos and PowerBook 2400c, which featured a slightly miniaturized version of the keyboards to reduce size and save space.

    Slightly off-topic, but I just wanted to let you know that we share a common vernacular. :p
