I think that would be horrible. Yoga book has already brought this idea to market, and typing on it is a nightmare.

It's okay, if you don't like it you can just plug an external keyboard into the dongle you have plugged into the dongle you have plugged into the only USB-C port they plan on offering!

Yoga book isn’t Apple. People were saying the exact same thing about iPhone vs Blackberry.

If done right, it is completely possible. But the old neck beards will certainly have a conniption fit.

Not sure I agree with the lenovo equals RIM comparison. By the way, lenovos had an oled bar on top of their keyboards but removed theirs when people said they didn't like it.

Lenovo keyboards are the industry leaders. ThinkPad keyboard is pretty much the gold standard on laptops

It's all about the implementation/execution. We'd need some new technology to really make this work well.

There was this [1] a few years back, not sure what happened to it.

Is it a nightmare? I haven't used it but I had heard positive reviews

I couldn't use it without a lot of typos, but ymmv. It looks nice though.
