This is my first blog post with my new keyboard: a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000.

After many recommendations, I chose to give it a try as I’m programming and writing more than 8 hours a day which is not that healthy.From time to time, I experience sharp stabs of pain in my forearms from typing that much, as my working environment at home is not very ergonomic at all.  That is a situation which is more than harmful in the long run.

So I followed the advice of one of my current coworkers and bought the title-giving keyboard from Microsoft.

One of my first impressions: That thing is huge! Pictures from the unboxing (sorry for the crappy quality!):

Notice the height enhancement for the wrists!

I’m kind of excited right now and hope that this keyboard will help me. :-)
