    The Keyboard is based on "QWERTY" key structure.The ''QWERTY'' layout was devised and created in the early 1870s by Christopher Latham Sholes. The purpose was to take the most commonly used letters in the English language and the most commonly paired letters to create the most efficient typing interface, reducing the maximum throw of your fingers. The idea is that the less movement necessary to complete any given sentence, the better. There are a few other keyboard layouts out there based on the English language, but none have proven to be of any greater efficiency. Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QWERTY
