I have used so many I have lost count, starting with a Smith
Corona portable typewriter in 1943. Currently I use a 101 key
rescued from a dead Packard Bell computer my stepson gave me.
This antique replaced a brand new keyboard that came with my
Systemax no-os desktop system. Unfortunately on the Systemax
keyboard the letters on the keycaps started wearing off rather
quickly. Two letters were completely blank in a few months.
Although I touch-type for the most part I still like to have the
letters indicated for when I have a senior moment.
Packard Bell may have made junky computers, but they bought
good keyboards. The "e" is starting to fade a bit however. Maybe
I will fill it in with a ballpoint pen.
