I used to have a Texas Instruments home computer that had no hard drive (this was the early 80's). I learned Basic programming on it. To store my programs, it had a cassette recorder (yes, cassette as in music cassette tape) that recorded the program to it and sounded just like a dialup modem. To store a couple dozen lines of code, it would record for about a full minute. Efficient, huh?
Also, I hate these new keyboards today. Especially the slim ones that came with the new desktop computers we got for our office last year. To use the function keys, like F5 to refresh, you have to hold down a "Function" key and then press the F-key. My example, the F5 key without holding down the extra function key, puts your computer to sleep. What a stupid idea, Lenovo!!! Other function keys dim/brighten your screen, turn the volume up/down, etc. The keyboard I use at home is by Saitek. It's about as close to an old fashioned keyboard that you can get. It has full sized keys that you can press on. It's not like a laptop keyboard.
