I'm not one with using the keyboard for the Web – and Web 2.0 has destroyed what little hope there was, with fake controls instead of HTML controls (though you've always had images for navigation that even Firefox's find-as-you-type can't jump to).
That was the nice thing about the Miniguru – for anyone who can use a trackpoint, you could even have that on the home row. You just don't get that with the Poker, HHKB or any other home-row-orientated keyboard.
What did surprise me the other day – the Dell Latitude E5420 has legends without the decal look – I don't know what they've done, but I was seriously impressed with the look. White and vivid colours on black, smoother than FILCO. Smooth like dye sub, but more like paint sub.
But yes, things I know I'd have to accept in a laptop, are spongy keys, decal look keys, LEDs placed where you can't see them, port legends on the side where you can't see them, horrible top-to-bottom backlight unevenness (we won't get rid of this until OLED when the diffusion panel becomes defunct), stupid rubber port covers that get bent and won't stay in … All the sorts of things that the 21st century should have eradicated.
First priority for me is DPI – keep the size down, but get the resolution up. 1400×1050 minimum for me, or, ugh gag puke, the widescreen equivalent. The best you get there in a compact 14" machine is 1600×900, kiss goodbye 150 rows of space.
We need like a FILCO/Topre of the laptop world, a company devoted to productivity machines, no widescreen, useful keyboard layouts (ctrl before fn, always!), top quality keyboards. Top of the range Gold Edition luggables would come with Cherry ML switches at a cost of portability ;-) laptop keyboards are unbelievably thin and bendy, and you won't pull that off with a grid of microswitches!)
