Actually, yes: I do often knock the PgUp/PgDn keys when I'm editing and
it sends my workflow into a spin. There are also a few buttons missing
compared to the previous style but I don't notice that: things like
PrtScrn, Pause, etc are missing.

The mechanical feel of the build is great tho'.

It's nice on the fingers but you should definitely familiarise yourself
with the specification quirks.
