      Stupid because it doesn't match your personal preferences?

        I see you'll pee

        Wow. That is not a gamer friendly arrow key design. At least there's this so someone can remap the keys into something that works for their needs:

          I would like to see them offer products in the ultra budget range. Realistically speaking Myself and many others really don't need this class of hardware. Even modern I3 processors are way more than enough for me now. I can easily skirt by with even an atom/pentium processor, or whatever the tier below I3 is now. I know a lot of people are the same now.

            Stupid because it doesn't match the standard of literally any other laptop I've ever used in my entire life. What were they thinking with this?

              I have lots of beef with non standard keyboard designs, but THIS is not among them. How many games do you play that are still controlled with the actual arrow keys? Most I know are WSAD.

                I was in agreement, but actually I think that might work OK. When I hit the shift key with my pinky I'm always hitting the left-most portion of the key, so there's no reason for it to be such a long key like it is on most keyboards. And arrow keys are different on a lot of layouts and especially different on laptops, those just take a bit of getting used to. I'll bet system76 did some testing and found that this works pretty well.

                  I still use arrow keys in games like BG3, in text editors, terminals, and a lot of places. I also posted a screenshot of their keyboard configuration tool that makes all of this moot.

                  It's a non-standard, odd design, but it has a way to be worked around so it's not a big deal. It's just inconvenient for people accustomed to a different way of doing things. Sort of related, but I'd prefer an inverted number pad option for keyboards; telephone style number pad. To this day bottom up number pads mess with me due to learning number/text layouts on phones at such a young age that PC and calculator number pads just don't feel intuitive to me.
