      Would you recommend I take the full size? I used to dislike full size because of the assymetry and distance to mouse

      But I realized now I can just switch the mouse to my left hand! Mind blown

      Like a new world is opening up now to me and I might now get my first full size keyboard

    Numpad is only useful if you work a lot with spread sheets.

      Or play roguelikes.

      That's how I learned I missed something on my TKL.

      On the flipside, however, I'm now more proficient and VIM binds.

        About a year I think.
        As new but then I only do the occasional search query and stuff like that.

        I actually have another one at my office and I only use it to enter the disk decryption password on a PC across the room from where I sit.
        For all actual work I use a remote desktop, but I have to enter the password before I can access it.
        I even bought a cheap 10 inch screen just so I can see the password prompt.

        Not him but the point is to put the mouse in a more natural position.
        Keyboard with numpads were designed before mouses were invented.

          I see. I actually also have a zsa moonlander, its pretty epic since you can access numpad on second layer without moving your hand. Essentially the best of both worlds

          I am just trying to find a way to get it more vertical then it will be ideal. The 45-60degree tenting angle feels bad. When I put it vertical it feels like a dream come true

          I'm not sure when the first keyboard with a numpad was made but I don't think that's true. If you look at the setup Doug Englebart used during The Mother of All Demos (first public demonstration of a computer mouse), you'll notice his keyboard didn't have a numpad.

            I haven't 3d printed anything in years but it seems fine to me, only problems are you need a tube and IDK if the vertical keyboards are ergonomic, you might want more of a slant

        The vast majority of people are A. not competent with a computer at all, and B. do not do anything that a numpad is helpful for.

        Just get a separate numpad. They're expensive for good ones but the convenience of moving it around to the left or right is really nice for CAD work, roguelikes, etc.

    I haven't charged mine in 18 months, when you turn off lighting and use logi bolt is uses almost 0 battery.
    Numpad means you have to use an awkward posture and hold the mouse further away to your side unless you are left handed.

        I don't see the point of numpad unless you use spreadsheets a lot with manual number entry, or bind a lot of macros or custom functions. I've been touch typing for a long time and can type numbers quickly using top row.

            Nice. Yeah it can be useful in niche cases but imo not even close to being worth it. also you have to learn how to type fast on the numpad specifically to use it well, I would be much faster just using the top row.

    I want a comfortable typing position, so I placemy keyboard in such a way, that the B key is in the exact middle of the desk. That way, my arms have the same angle when typing.
    With a full size keyboard, this means my mouse is way too far on the right, making it uncomfortable to use. A smaller keyboard rectifies this somewhat.
    The ideal solution would be to have the numpad on the left of the keyboard, which is currently wasted space, but very few such keyboards are made.

    Getting rid of the function keys is troony behaviour, though.

    if they moved the numpad to the left, how long would it take for you to relearn it, it's so ingrained I'm not sure if I can transition. I'll probably end up moving my right hand to the right every time before I realize that the numpad has moved.
