Laptop keyboards are evil (even nice thinkpad fullsize ones), use them
regularly at your peril. The keystrokes are too short (and cause
tendonitis according to current research) and the hands are typically
bent (a lot).

Well in my case, 2 months of continuous laptop use (Thinkpad T42 + PB
12" whilst code freelancing in the UK and Montreal) is what brought on
my first bout of acute tendonitis.
