Re: Where to buy laptop with english keyboard?

Unless you are only staying in Switzerland for a short time I suggest you stick with a Swiss keyboard (it sounds like you have QWERTZ). The Y and Z switch is a pain to get used to, but trying to type German or French on a US keyboard is a real pain.

The longer you are here the more often you will find yourself typing German or French into the computer (even if it just to get a machine translation or something). After being here a year, my work laptop with a US English keyboard is annoying when I am on the road away from my full size Swiss keyboard and have to write the occasional email or Google search in German.
