    The "keyboards" item answered my questions, Tnanx!

    My wife (83) spends hours on her laptop each day & very seldom uses the keyboard. I think I will buy a tablet for her at Christmas!

    Been in computers since they were invented! By the way I am also 83 & a MS Beta Tester!

    Hi Tully nice to have you here :D Split on screen keyboard with a two handed grip and thumb typing seems like a nice way to use this tablet when you only need to do a little bit of typing.
