Kensington SlimBlade Media Notebook with a Detachable Numeric Keypad

I just picked up a Kensington wireless keyboard, laser mouse and numeric keypad a few weeks back. Price was $105 then.

It meets my three primary requirements:
1) The number pad detaches so I can mouse closer to my keyboard
2) It's wireless
3) It looks and feels nice

I doubt I'll use the wireless keypad much, but if I do I can either keep it free of the keyboard or attach it to either the left or right side. It is so much more comfortable to mouse close to the keyboard instead of way out to the right, which is why I got it in the first place.

I also really like the way it looks and the way the keys feel when pressed. It's very thin and light but has some heft to it all the same. It has all the navigation buttons I use often (home, page up, page down, end) and the arrow keys.

Of course it also has my favorite key of all time: "Scroll Lock" just in case I get transported in time back to 1977. Really keyboard makers, it's time to find a better use for that key. How about "Ad Block" or "Post to Facebook" or "Bookmark Page"?

FWIW, it is rated highly on Amazon: 4 out of 5 stars, 49 customer reviews.
comment My KVM switch uses the "scr lk" key to toggle between systems. All we are saying, is give ScrLk a chance! - JayC 8 years, 9 months ago
comment NOTE: There is no Windows 7 driver for this keyboard, but it is certified to work by Microsoft and installs automatically without extra software, so no problems. - mitch 8 years, 9 months ago

ASUS Wireless Eee Keyboard and Mouse Set

Like you (I assume), I hardly ever use my keyboard's number pad and hate that it forces me to mouse so far out to the right.

I bought the ASUS Eee keyboard because it was small, lightweight, easy to setup and wireless. Plus, I like the way it looks and the way the 'chiclet' style keys feel.

I run Windows 7 and all I had to do was plug in the dongle and Windows installed the correct driver.
