After being accustomed to the wide keys on the roomy keyboards of a desktop, the compact keyboards and little keys on a notebook tend to feel rather cramped, and some notebooks have especially inconvenient keyboard features like condensed or unconventionally placed Enter, Shift or arrow keys, which is a further nuisance while typing.

Keyboard size isnâ??t the only element of consideration and the shape and size of the key is just as important since wobbly keys are a hindrance to typing accuracy. The best notebook with a full sized keyboard for 2016 has either flat, individual keys or Classic tapered ones which have a concave surface for the fingertips, to allow hassle free typing.
