best keyboard for traveling
Hi, How are you?
Can I ask a quick question?
As you know, I am using a Microsoft Sculpt keyboard. I have three of them for office, home, and even traveling or any other cases.
It is a bit bulky to carry, but I cannot use my laptop keyboard anymore. It is so tiring.
MS sculpt KB + Xah Flykey are my savor for daily work.
it's hard to say which is the best for traveling.
i think one of the following might suit your needs:
i'd favore the kinesis Freestyle Edge if you don't find it too bulky.
x-bows is great except it isn't split, and is flat.
Mistel is good except it doesn't have physical number keys and no F1 keys.
lots varieties by Bandai Tamashii

Apple's Magic Trackpad
one annoying thing about trackpad is the feel of rubbing finger on it. But Apple's latest trackpad solved that. It feels good rubbing on it. Not sure exactly what's the material. Somewhat like the surface of something with thick glossy paint
also, Apple's trackpad is bludsuking expensive. As everything Apple.
by the way, sometimes in the past, i thought about paint, and it occurred to me, paint is just a kinda glue. colored glue.
