The Key-board Tale. My laptop is facing with a key board problem. The keys seem to work fine till the laptop is moved much - following which the internal circuitry messes up and you have to keep trying random shakes in random sequences to make it work again. As a result I had to use the software keyboard that comes with Windows for a while and now even have an USB keyboard that I can carry along for emergency. To sum it my laptop is fast reaching the state where it is going to be a desktop with a small screen :( Andrew was right - the average time for laptops to become obsolete is indeed close to two years. Ahem.
