    I just received an XPS 15 that I ordered. The keyboard on it is the crappiest I've ever experienced and is completely unusable. Are the Inspirion keyboards the same or are they any better?

    What brand laptops have the best keyboards? I don't need to type books on it, but it at least needs to be decent.

    Yes. They're all crappy chiclet keyboards.

    I'm looking at the Lenovo Thinkpads now, they look like they have much better.

    Just wait until you use the touchpads on Thinkpads though.
