Buying new laptop – plenty of advice threads, and including keyboard choice, but not specifically keyboard choice. Many on ‘how can I avoid buying a France keyboard laptop in France…’
So on the apple site I have a choice (many) –
Key (hah hah – sorry) considerations:
Work – UK clients (I’m in IT)
Work – France (don’t they all use English?)
Language courses – for nationality
Writing French for the heck of it (presuming the authorities don’t give a toss about unaccented e-mails)
Hey – how about future social media (you never know what’s ‘dans l’avenir’)?
And don’t we just want to immerse in French…
Could just plug in my querty keyboard to the laptop – (or won’t that work)
And also all the other considerations I don’t know I’ve yet considered.
What I’ve seen so far (including SF)
France keyboard is shit – they have a key for an accented letter which appears in only one word (ou)
You have to shift to get a full stop - and numbers?
Much nicer for accents obvs
The german keyboard is actually better for typing French!
So let me know your thoughts – what have you got (keyboard wise), and how do you get along with it…
And your recommendations of course!
Thanks in advance
