    Look at this piece of idiotically designed crap that they call a frigging keyboard. Did the moron that went to 10 years of ****ing marketing never use a ****ing keyboard in his entire ****ing life? Who the **** thought it would be a good idea to make the F1-F12 keys secondary that need to be activated by pressing fn? I almost broke the stupid F5 key trying to refresh a webpage.

    and look at the stupid up/down arrow key. What the **** was this ****ing idiot thinking? Theres so much ****ing space to do a regular keyboard, but this ****ing guy who has to justify his existence has to be smart and come up with this pieec of **** keyboard.

    And to top it off, theres no ****ing led light on the num lock button so you got no effing clue when the number lock is on or not. **** this stupid ****ing design. 17.3" ****ing inches and cant even do a full keyboard. ****ing stupid company. If this thing wasnt so damn cheap, I'd return it just because of this.

    You're right op, HP makes GIGANTIC keyboards, how do you type when the buttons are as big as your picture?

    all those random ****s by the keyboard make your writing hard to understand. Definitely defective.

    Is that an ultra portable?

    There are compromises by necessity on those.

    Why the heck did you buy it then?

    he's got it right. I've turned down cheaper options for 15 years purely based on keyboard layout.

    There should be a bios option to switch f1-f12 back to what you want

    There should be a contest called "Hotbolla or What?" where we try to guess which one of them posted certain inane threads.

    Who doesn't press a Num or Caps Lock a couple of times to see if it's on or not? Irrational as always.

    A couple of points...
    1. You're probably old school, so you actually use function keys (as do I). However, I bet most of the younger generation these days don't use it.

    2. You can change the behavior in the F10 bios setup. There should be an option for Action keys mode, which will reverse the functionality so Fn keys take precedence.

    Just wanted to say thank you to both of you. I did the change in the bios and it worked like a charm
