Hi all,
We are planning on ordering the next lot of XO-4s and I need some
suggestions on which keyboard model to choose -membrane  or
hard/clicky one. We had membrane one for our first lot and keyboard
switching was very convenient on that model.  One reason not to choose
hard/clicky one is that it doesn't have key for language switching (
correct me if I am wrong) -I have one spanish hard/clicky and it
doesn't have that key - key 56 at
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Keyboard_layouts. Hard/Clicky on the
other hard is more convenient while typing. Please suggest.
