You should definitely do Dvorak. That's what all the programmers use. The layout was created so it enhances your typing speed. I know someone who can type 130wpm on Dvorak. It's pretty legit.

LOL, I'd buy another keyboard for it so i wouldn't risk messing it up.

What do you mean another?
I lost my iBook cause my brother broke it, but I'm making him oay me back for it, so I'm gonna get another.

It had a DV keyboard.
Took me a couple hours though.

You have little keys.
Yeah it'll work i guess, but it says just shy of 1/2 inch so it will end up smaller. It wont look good though.

Ugh wouldn't beveling get tedious after 104 keys?

I guess it would look better. Depends on the uniformity of my bezels.

Meh i guess, just a suggestion.

I'm OCD so I probably shouldn't start try this project.
I'd end up spending like 6 months on it.
