To me, it’s the single most annoying thing with my new (German, yay!) Librem 13.
I want real up/down keys and dedicated Home/End keys. I use them all the time to navigate and select text (Shift(+Ctrl)+End etc.)
For the last 5 years, I’ve been using a Lenovo Yoga 13 Ideapad. The perfect keyboard, IMHO.
If anything, I’d probably swap the PgUp/PgDn with Home/End, because I rarely use PgUp/PgDn.
Edit: Also, Delete in the top right corner is excellent. You never miss it. It might have some design-y appeal to put the on/off switch there, so that there is absolutely no key (just kill switches) outside of the keyboard area, but I think it’s not very practical. I’d rather put the on/off in a row with the status LEDs and the kill switches. Sunken, so you don’t accidently switch them.
@nicole.faerber, please consider for the next models:
A few things represent a downgrade for me, coming from the 5yro Yoga. I don’t really miss the touch screen a lot, and I can cope with the fast USB being on the right side (silly when using mouse plus ext HDD as a right-handed guy).
Some more status LEDs (Caps/Scroll Lock) would be appreciated.
The fan is way too loud and the control of the fan speed is too sensitive. That’s annoying. Moving the camera in SweetHome3D for 5 seconds starts the fan at full speed (I hope this can be improved software-side, as the same thing worked much better on the Yoga on Windows).
But really my pet peeve is the keyboard / navigation keys.
