Hey now, the non-chiclet version (with actual keys) isn't so bad.

It took me a while to discover WHY the original PCjr keyboard used rubber keys:
  It was so the complete newbie could use thin cardboard "overlays" that fit
completely over the keyboard and illustrated what each key did in a particular
application. King's Quest for PCjr did this, IIRC, as did a few other programs.
