sirius, just stay kool bro, i will be in the same boat as you, just like many others.
Now I have been reading about switching the FN and ctrl key from when i started looking at laptops clsoe to 9 months ago. Back then there was no solution.
There we many threads across all 3 forums regarding this and of course they all led to the same conclusions as this thread.
A lot of people do complain about this, but you WILL get used to it overtime. If you want you can search for these thread over all 3 forums. I quote from someone who is very respectable (i think it was chazman) "I kinda like the FN key closer to my hand" Yes he does not like it, but he got used to it. Later on in the thread he tells us that its hard for him to use a regular keyboard because he uses the laptop keyboard so much.
As previously tested there is no remapping for the FN key for ASUS laptops YET. Me and Coriolis did some research about this along time ago and came to a conclusion that you gotta get used to it, because the FN key is somehow linked to the BIOS and wired that way, thus Windows does NOT recognize it as a normal key. HENCE remapping will not work.
As previously stated companies released back to allow users to fix this. However ASUS is still a brand new baby to the market and has not released a BIOS update or patch to fix it. Will they in the future? Who knows.
People, like Danny, Justin, Eddie, Sasha and others have a lot of SAY to asus and through them you can push for the BIOS/patch that will allow users to fix this.
PS: You are not the only one who feels like this, Infact you are the MAJORITY of people who feel and know the FN key is in the wrong spot.
To make it official YES Its in the WRONG spot, but i am 100% its CHEAPER to put it there and code it, compared to making in the right side of ctrl.
Also ASUS will not change their keyboard layout. Infact once a brand choses to go one way with the keyboard, it sticks. LOL.
>>>>Now you do sorta have a small choice.
I personally would be using the laptop keyboard at school for notetaking and hopefully not much multi-tasking because of the FN key, but i know i will get used to it over time.
When im a home im gonna quickly plug in a USB keyboard and then game. There are three positives for this method.
1) You can game properly on the USB keyboard, compared to the laptop keyboard. (you really shouldn't game in school, you'll look bad)
2) The wear and tear of gaming on you laptop keyboard will be a lot lower since you'll be gaming on a USB keyboard.
3) You will slowly get used to the FN while your at school, until ASUS releases a patch or if they never do. (who knows)
sirius all you gotta do is just hang in there, also there is no CURRENT solution.
Hope this helps.
