    I'm in dental school right now, and I'm in class pretty much all day taking notes on my macbook. When typing on my macbook, I can take notes really fast. Typing is smooth and I don't make many typos. It's really effortless.

    When I come home and hook up my macbook to my external display and use the Apple Wireless Keyboard, which to me looks to basically be the same exact keyboard, I can't type nearly as well. I make typos on it constantly and I can't seem to get comfortable on it.

    Any ideas on what's going on here? Anyone else have any similar problems when constantly switching between a MacBook keyboard and the Apple Wireless keyboard? The only thing I can think of is that the MacBook keyboard likes completely flat within the chassis, whereas the wireless keyboard has a slight angulation to it for sitting on a desk. But could something that small really make that big of a difference?

    Everyone is different. It takes me a little bit to adjust when my MBP is in the BookArc with my external keyboard.

    Then again, my external keyboard is an early 90s Dell PS2 keyboard. It kind of sounds like I am dropping a pickup truck full of bricks with every keystroke.

    ndpitch... It might.

    Try one of the Logitech keyboards to see if that makes a difference.
