       The idea has been a round for a while. A patent was issued in 1998. You can buy an electrically warmed keyboard within a month. see www.warmkeyboard.com. The keyboard will be UL listed and safe. A warm mouse will be available near the end of 2005. warmheart, 2/21/2005

       Many laptops use the keybard as a heat sink of sorts.

       Maybe I missed an inside joke somewhere, but what's with all the capital Ts?

       The difficulty of typing with gloves on, I guess. (Check out Testy's other ideas for prior comments on the subject.)

       Bless you and THANKS, warmheart !!! for the http://www.warmkeyboard.com link   

       $50 for a heated keyboard seems a bit steep, doesn't it?   

       How about just putting the keyboard on top of an electric heating pad / battery warmer / whatever works?

       My fingers burn in the summer, touching my laptop keyboard. And that's with a Lenovo ideapad. Before that I couldn't even touch the kb on my HP Pavilion dv6k.   

       What's needed is a COLD kb!
