The keyboard on my old Samsung was the only feature I didn't like. It is 
only a little bigger than the Samsung.  It should be delivered on 
Monday.  I could have had it earlier, but am definitely going to be 
around all day Monday to receive it.  I'm really impressed with the 
amount of downloadable information on the Lenovo site.  The manuals seem 
really comprehensive.  I'm sure it will handle all I want to do with it 
while away from home.  Thanks again all of you.

Regards,        Barry.
