I have tried many times to 'like' the Sony Z but I can't get past the keyboards. They are awful.
I am extremely fast typist, averaging 120-130wpm without thinking about it. I taught myself to type when I was about five or six and therefore do not follow the standard hand placement and only use three fingers on each hand.
I cannot live without the Thinkpad keyboard. Anything else just fails to work.
The Sony keyboards strike me as an egregious example of 'form over function.' Why all the wasted space between the keys? Why the horrible key feel? Why so long for the key to rebound? Key needs to get back up quick so I can hit it in again, most keyboards don't rebound quick enough and I find myself hitting still partially depressed keys.
