help me, metafilter! so i use an adorable msi netbook i picked up in taiwan for working on various writing projects, but because the keyboard is so small i really can't write for too long without my fingers cramping up. i thought this wouldn't be too much of an issue since i have abnormally small hands (friends who try out my netbook are always like wow, someone finally made a keyboard for your teensy hands!) but i'm used to typing on a fullsized keyboard at work all day.
i'm looking for a light, portable, travel-happy no-frills laptop with an extremely comfortable keyboard. the most important factors are 1) it doesn't weigh too much, because i take it with me to write at cafes, on the beach, on the go, and when i'm in libraries doing research, and 2) a reaaaal comfy keyboard. think, you can type for 6 hours at a time without getting cramped up. i use an imac/cintiq combo for all my other computing needs, so i really just need something small and on the go (and also that i can easily disconnect from the interwebs) so i don't need something exploding with power, really just enough to run a word processor and maybe look stuff up on the interwebs from time to time. prefer a solid state drive, but that's not necessary. ideally i can go to stores to try out the keyboards too, as i got my netbook sight unseen and didn't anticipate the keyboard issue.
